Visual analysis of WWW2010 Conference
The WWW2010 Conference took place on April 26-30. I couldn’t attend it but I collected all the tweets with the hashtag #www2010 from March 31 to May 3. As an image is worth more than a thousand words I made a visual analysis of the Conference from this data.

- Users: 3,093 tweets were written by 900 different users, with an average of 1.24 tweets / user. 71.35% of tweets were written by 20% of users (Paretos’s Law). The most actives users were: @futureweb2010 (125), @LaTerribleLiz (119), @BoraZ ( 96), @fabien_gandon ( 88), @smalljones (67), @tommyh @olgag (57), @apisanty (47), @karenchurch.
- URLs: 1,112 urls were found, 549 of them were different. There were 845 (76%) shorted URLs. Bit.ly was the most shorten url service used with a share of 65.9%.
- Trends: there is a growing interest in Twitter, it is present in most RTs and clicked URLs. However, it maybe due to people who use twitter being more interested in Twitter.
- RT vs. Clicks: There is not a correlation between RTs and Clicks, as can be seen in the image:
- Own tools were used to extract data
- The bit.ly API and the Python-bitly library were used to get the number of clicks for each URL.
- Many eyes web service was used to data visualize
(1) This ranking is only for URLs shorted with bit.ly. Others URLs couldn’t be measured
