4 Aug 2014
Description

Presents initial findings from a research project aimed at determining some of the key themes and topics driving activity in the Australian Twittersphere.

Introduction

Twitter is widely used in Australia, but we don’t actually know such a great deal about the structure and dynamics of the Australian Twittersphere. Back in 2011/12, our research began to identify Australian Twitter users and map their follower/followee connections in order to develop a better understanding of the structure of the network and from this determine some of the key themes and topics driving activity in the Australian Twittersphere, and we’re currently in the process of substantially extending this work. In this post I’m starting to share some first findings from this work.
