This is a brief demo video about NodeXL analyzing Twitter social network connections among a group of users who all mentioned the term “digg”.
This is a good demonstration of several features in NodeXL: social media network importers (in this case from Twitter), the use of a variety of layouts, auto-fill column mappings, and dynamic filters to reveal some important structures, groups and people in the graph.
Here is the source data in a NodeXL workbook: 2009 – November – NodeXL – Twitter Digg 3
Note! Excel has issues with security and workbooks. The easiest way to use that file is to open a blank NodeXL template and use the “Import from older workbook ” feature to pull the data into a workbook that your copy of Excel *can* trust.
