Welcome to the TwArχiv.
The TwArχiv is a Twitter Archive Analyzer that is designed to take in a complete Twitter archive as downloaded from Twitter.com and subsequently analyse it with respect to the number of tweets/replies etc. On the most basic level it displays how a person's tweeting frequency changes over time and how the proportion of tweets/retweets/replies changes over time. The TwArχiv additionally tries to predict the gender of the people that a given user retweets and replies to, potentially uncovering unconscious bias when it comes to online interactions. Furthermore, the TwArχiv uses geolocation to display a Tweet-location and movement profile for the user.
