#Measure in 2010 – Figuring Out Measure Network Analysis

How to Understand This Chart

Circles for Individuals

Each person is in the #measure in 2010 chart is represented by an oval, or circular, shape.

The size of the shape is determined by:

  • Number of Tweets tagged with #measure
  • Modified by variety of content
  • Reduced for re-tweets

See the a previous blog post for a more detailed background of the algorithm employed.

After each person is represented for contents, each arrow in or out of a person is a message, to or from that person.

Peter O’Neill

Take, for example, a zoom in of Peter O’Neill. Peter is an excellent analyst based in London, if you are looking for someone in that area consider using his services.

The shape is not very large, but the messages which Peter sent to “daverooney,” “rockergirrl” and “benjamingaines” are clearly labeled with arrows.

Lower Corner

In the lower right corner there is a collection of people who tweeted infrequently, but sent on message tagged with #measure to another person.

For whatever reason they aren’t engaged with the conversation going on in the center of the #measure network. I recognize several of the Twitter ID’s and am very curious why this is the case.

Jason Thompson

Jason Thompson has an interesting array of messages coming and going from his profile which are tagged with #measure.

Lots of interaction with the people who message him with the #measure hashtag.


That’s about all there is to it . . . sorry if you wish it were more complicated.

As far as image size I could have excluded more people from the sample for 2010, as it is I excluded anyone who only used #measure once.

WAA Spring Gala

I hope to start coloring in the attendees of the Spring Gala, and perhaps eMetrics SF overall, later this week.

Thomas Bosilevac, winner of the free eMetrics pass, has let me know he is going to attend. If he can make it, shouldn’t you?

Make sure to register for the WAA Spring Gala on the WAA site.
