Mapping online communities

Resonet is an attempt to map the twitter community related to the resonate festival.

Mapping niche communities

This map shows a selection of 2114 Twitter accounts related to the resonate festival and their 175’380 followership relations. We collected all Twitter users that are followed by a list of seed accounts (festival speakers, organizers and attendees). This map presents a selection of users that are followed by at least 8 people in this extended network. The size of each username corresponds to the number of followers in this network. The layout attempts to minimize link lengths; consequently, nodes that share a lot of links are placed next to each other. Each node is assigned a color depending on an automatic clustering algorithm. Each link represents followership and is colored depending on the source node (the follower).
