When did people tweet about JWST@SXSW?
Here we show when people tweeted (orange) or re-tweeted (blue) during JWST@SXSW. For the first figure, the data has been binned into 2 minute bins. The decision on whether a particular message is a tweet or a re-tweet was made by Twitter.
Number of tweets: and retweets:
The top plot shows the number of tweets (a cumulative view), whereas the bottom plot shows the tweet rate, per day. The values under the day name in the buttons above give the number of tweets (T) and retweets (RT) in that day. Use the "Smooth" button to switch to a lightly-smoothed version of the data. Note that the times remain as CST even after the change to CDT on Sunday, March 10.
A cumulative view
Here the vertical axis indicates the Tweeter, with the bottom being the first to tweet and the top the last. Each tweet is represented by a circle - coloring is the same as the plot above, so a tweet is orange and a re-tweet is blue - and a set of horizontal circles indicates multiple tweets by the author. The difference to the cumulative plot above is that the height of the curve here gives the number of different tweeters, rather than the number of tweets. If anyone can point me to the recent blog which analyzed the tweets from a conference using R and included this style of plot, I'll be able to credit it.
