Tweet Transmission Tree

This is the job to get the 'interconnected set of tweets' from the streaming jobs already done. This can be formalized as ttt := tweet transmission tree depending on what is extractable from it.

Blackboard discussion notes at LaMaStEx on 2016-10-10.

We will eventually lua/la/ka-tex mathematically here..

Tweet Transmission Trees (ttt) and Tweet Follows Network (tfn)




Tweet Transmission Tree (TTT)

Collecting tweets

Producing TTTs

Twitter Health Metrics Proposal "Scalable Markov Kernels from Twitterverse to GDELT Project"


Read it here in more detail.

To Be Released Soon

  • single-source shortest weighted path-ways as distributed vertex programs

    • Aldous' 'directed' meeting process as Geomertic Random Variables on each directed edge between a pair of twitter-ID-nodes that is obtained from a Poisson with random mean drawn from Exponential Random Variables with rate given by the inverse of the observed number of 'meeting' events
    • adaptation of the above to multiple sources for 'multi-extremal' ideological concurrence profiles
      • with iterative k-means clustering for a de-contracting hierarchy of Nearest Neighbor-joining trees/forests (Joakim Johansson's MSc theses Uppsala 2018)
  • interactive and iterative populations-of-interest selective breadth-first network expansion designs for updating live stream filters

    • interctive D3 plots by Olof Bjorck, Uppsala University Spring 2018.
