Today I attended the Joining the Dots visualisation symposium. You can see the slides for my talk about clustering trees here. It was a great event and hope we see more meetings like this in the future. Here is an analysis of the Twitter activity on the #jtdwehi hashtag, thanks to code from Neil Saunders. You can see it on Github.

Introduction

An analysis of tweets from the Joining the Dots symposium. 1237 tweets were collected using the rtweet R package:

jtdwehi <- search_tweets("#jtdwehi", 10000)
saveRDS(jtdwehi, "data/jtdwehi.Rds")

Search all the hashtags!
