Welcome to the tutorial of the twitter explorer at the ODYCCEUS online conference 2020. We will go through the steps of installing the tool, collecting Twitter data, transforming and visualising them using interactive networks.

See the interface in action at this year’s IC2S2:

The twitter explorer makes use of networks to make sense of large amounts of data. It extracts the metadata from raw Twitter data, transforms it to a graph and spatialises it using a force-directed layout algorithm. In this tutorial, we are going to learn how to use the interface to perform these steps.

Go to the next part of the tutorial below to learn how to acquire a Twitter Developer account and how to install the twitter explorer on your machine.
