ABOUT: The USA PoliDashboard is a real-time, Twitter analytics dashboard designed to help voters, members of the media, and campaign staffers to monitor Twitter conversations about the 2016 US federal election. The dashboard uses the Twitter Streaming API (~1% sample of all tweets) to collect, analyze,and visualize tweets (last 24-hours) containing the following hashtags: #uspolitics, #elxn2016, #democrat, #republican, #gop, #dnc, #dem, #rnc, #election2016, #uspoli.
HOW TO USE: For a more granular, hour-by hour view of the data, 1) mouse over the "#tweets by minute" panel till you see a "+" and then left click and drag the mouse to select the desired time period. The dashboard will display data for the period selected. 2) You can also click on any of the data points in the other panels and drill down on the data.
DEVELOP BY: The dashboard is a project of the Social Media Lab (socialmedialab.ca) at the Ted Rogers School of Management, Ryerson University. The Lab study online communities and develop new tools and techniques for analyzing and visualizing social media data. Our aim is to provide decision makers with additional knowledge and insights into the behaviors and relationships of online network members, and to understand how these interpersonal connections influence our choices and actions.
