How to Capture and Visualise Twitter Data Using NodeXl’s Group-in-a-Box Option

Abstract

Capturing big data from Twitter to analyse and visualise can be daunting. This How-to Guide demonstrates how NodeXL and its application programming interface (API) with Twitter can reduce the complexity of such tasks. The example focuses on NodeXL’s ‘Group-in-a-box’ visualisation technique.

Students are shown what to consider before downloading data, how to group data into themes or topics, identify communities, what the communities are saying, and potential influencers. The How-to Guide also provides students with an overview of social network analysis.
