FinalYearProject

Collection of Scripts, files and documents for my Final Year Btech project on information flow through social networks (like twitter).

The entire project report: https://drive.google.com/file/d/11Ro1goUu_WuHx5aF9C3gL45kYooQEZGI/view

Final Result:

Here we searched for tweets for the hashtag #fakenews around begining of April when the Indian IB Ministry had issued a circular regarding punishing journalists who spread fake news. We were able to scrape tweets and find distinct clusters of twitter accounts who were talking about this using hashtag #fakenews

Orange = BJP inclined accounts
Blue = Congress inclined accounts
Green = News outlets and mostly unbiased accounts
Purple = Accounts from USA who were talking about the media targetting Trump with #fakenews

v1.0 - contains the initial presentation and report that was created after the initial study, also contains the first program I wrote to draw the graph using twitter accounts and the list of their followers, following. The program took a list of accounts as input. I was using an online tool to grab tweets from #hashtags on twitter then extracting the accounts which tweeted to make the list of nodes for this program.

v2.0 - a complete standalone program to just accept a #hashtag. It will then extract tweets, retweets and graw graph using both the details.

v2.5 - the program can now also export the edge list in .gexf format so that it can be imported to Gephi. The program when run with "resolve" command will convert the node names from twitter account IDs to usernames. The program now has multiple checkpoints so that even if the program crashes during any of the steps we can restart from the same point.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
