Methods Processing Tools Twitter Visualisation — Snurb, 29 June 2011

Following on from the “World According to Twitter” research workshop at QUT, today we presented our research methods at a pre-conference workshop at Communities & Technologies 2011. This was probably the most extensive presentation of our work on Twitter research to date – including a live demonstration of how to work with basic yourTwapperkeeper datasets.

Below are the two presentations I made during the day, with audio attached. Obviously, some of the audio commentary refers to the live demonstrations, which we didn’t capture – but I hope it’s useful nonetheless.
