Twitter Network Analysis of Open Government Data Camp 2011

Here’s a quick overview of the twitter communications that complimented Open Government Data Camp 2011, based on the #ogdcamp hashtag. The harvest was started on the 16th August 2011 and is currently still going (hopefully providing a comparative look at the growth after the satellite events). Let’s look at the tweet statistics:

Total Number of tweeters using the #ogdcamp tag: 969
Total Number of tweets since 16th August (till 00:00 22nd October): 4031
Total Number of tweets during OGD Camp main dates (20st and 21nd October): 2514

Also as a quick visualisation, I’ve put together a graph of the tweet frequency, and also the top 30 tweeters.

Soon I’ll also be putting up an illustrated timeline of tweets, offering a different take on the twitter network; more of this to come in a short while!
