Analyzing 72 Hours of #Gamergate

Over the last week, I’ve been scraping every single #Gamergate tweet to do some network analysis. I ended up writing the whole thing up on Medium, I hope you like it.

One interesting bit: I discovered Newsweek made a major mistake reporting the sentiment analysis on their Gamergate feature, confirmed by the analytics company that collected it. I updated my post with the details.


    Would you be willing to share the program used on your data set to transform it into a network for gephi and also gephi project files used to process that network?

    Unfortunately, I was asked by Twitter to remove all the datasets, as it’s a violation of the Developer Terms. More info in the post, if you’re curious.
