Resource / Mapped: The climate change conversation on Twitter via Anthony Deos

By Futures Centre / 29 Apr 2016

Twitter has become a popular social media platform for discussing climate change. A wide range of people across the world use Twitter  – scientists, politicians, campaigners, journalists, etc – to converse about the topic.

But amid the sheer volume of chatter, it’s often hard to get a top-down sense of who the most influential users are on Twitter – and where they “sit” within the Twitter “universe” compared to other users.

So Carbon Brief has commissioned Right Relevance to start harvesting data from Twitter and use it to build maps periodically showing how the influencers within the climate change conversation shift over time.

 

What might the implications of this be? What related resources have you seen?
