Tinati, Ramine and Carr, Leslie (2012) ReFluence: A Real-Time and Historic Visualization Application for Twitter Conversations At Social Media Visualisation (SocMedVis) Workshop - ICWSM2012.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Poster)


Social networks provide a new and exciting way for individuals, businesses, organizations and governments to create and share information. Specific social networks such as the popular micro-blogging social network site, Twitter, provide individuals with an opportunity to disseminate information to a potentially global audience. In this paper we describe the ongoing development of ReFluence, which has been developed to visualize Twitter streams, providing a historic and real-time visualization of the growth of Twitter conversations between users, based upon the networks that form through the retweet feature. In addition to this, ReFluence also provides a way to identify and classify different users based on their Twitter behavior.
