The graph represents a network of 611 Twitter users whose tweets in the requested date range contained “lennyism OR insightnovation OR #IIeX”, or who were replied to or mentioned in those tweets. The network was obtained from the NodeXL Graph Server on Monday, 09 June 2014 at 00:24 UTC.

The requested date range was from Tuesday, 01 April 2014 at 00:00 UTC through Sunday, 08 June 2014 at 23:59 UTC.

There is an edge for each “replies-to” relationship in a tweet, an edge for each “mentions” relationship in a tweet, and a self-loop edge for each tweet that is not a “replies-to” or “mentions”.

The graph is directed.

The graph’s vertices were grouped by cluster using the Clauset-Newman-Moore cluster algorithm.

The graph was laid out using the Harel-Koren Fast Multiscale layout algorithm.

The edge colors are based on edge weight values. The edge widths are based on edge weight values. The edge opacities are based on edge weight values. The vertex sizes are based on followers values. The vertex opacities are based on followers values.
