Seminar: Data Networks and Analysis for Community Engaged Scholarship
Jacob Groshek, Ph.D.
Ross Beach Chair of Emerging Media Research in the A.Q. Miller School of Journalism and Mass Communications
This presentation introduces the cloud-based Digital Methods Initiative - Twitter Collection and Analysis Toolkit that allows researchers to collect Tweets off the STREAM API (the so-called “gardenhose” access to Twitter) and then process the data for network analysis and visualization in Gephi or Excel/SPSS (or similar). With this software, social data in the millions of units is quickly and easily sorted by algorithms to find users or items of importance on Twitter with a generally representative sample of content. The presentation will also cover analytic approaches to filtering data and identifying communities of users.
Sponsored by the A.Q. Miller School of Journalism & Mass Communications, Department of Communication Studies, Department of Communications and Agricultural Education, and the Staley School of Leadership Studies
