For my analysis of the Tweetorial, I have looked at two categories and (“Top Users” and “User Mentions”) and added another two (“Mentions per Tweet” and “Average rank”). You can look at the Excel spreadsheet I created here: mscedcanal
Here is a screenshot of the spreadsheet.
Selected questions arising from the provided data analysis:
Angela Tsui did not take part. Did anyone even realize? Is it because she is in Hong Kong? Is she?
Jeremy and James got the most mentions. Does this reflect power structures in the course?
Philip sent the most Tweets, but his “mentions per Tweet ratio” is somewhat low. Does this say anything at all?
Philip’s timezone is hours behind. He sent the most tweets. Angela’s timezone is hours ahead. She has no Tweets. What does this mean?
Eli has no top five rank in “number of Tweets”, “mentions” or “mentions per Tweet ratio”, but ranks at position 5 overall. tweetarchivist would not have given her due respect. What does this say about tweetarchivist or Eli’s performance?
Leaving out course tutors Jeremy and James, the top overall users are Nigel, Renée, Eli, Daniel and Colin.
The following users ranked in the top 5 at least once: Philip, Colin, Nigel, Helen, Jeremy, Eli, Renée, Daniel, James, Stuart and Ben.
Who are Ben Williamson, Monica Bulger and Jo Glover?
Monica Bulger, Ross Garner, Jo Glover and @Dirkster71 got mentions without tweeting. Does this make them super important/ relevant? Did they simply forget to include the #mscedc hashtag? Why do the not show up in the “mentions per Tweet” category?
Dirk Schwindenhammer has two Twitter accounts (and others possibly, too). Does this influence the results?
Do language barriers influence Twitter behaviour?
Is any of the presented data and data analysis relevant at all? Does it say anything about quality?
“Number of Tweets” and “mentions” are data provided by tweetarchivist.com. “Mentions per Tweet ratio” and “average rank” are data provided by Dirk Schwindenhammer, based on the data provided by tweetarchivist.com. Are any of the categories of any use?
Did instructions provided by the tutors prior to the Tweetorial influence behaviour and how?
