Improved visualization of conference tweets
In my last post I mentioned that the chord diagram wasn’t as useful as the matrix diagram to view the entire set of twitter interactions in a conference. I made a few changes to the diagrams since then.
I removed the tweeters with 1 or 2 tweets (this may not be a good idea – more on that in a future post). I also used different shades of the same color for the chords (darker colors indicate more tweets). With these changes, the difference in the two conferences is much more visible.
I also made some modifications to the matrix diagram. I was again trying to find a way to easily compare two conferences. See the images below. You may be able to view the visualizations side-by-side in browser windows.
I’ll be posting some more data on these two conferences in a future post. Let me know if you think the visualization helps to compare the interactions in the two conferences.
