US Elections

Thought I would do a series of wordclouds and sentiment graphs each day from Australia using data from twitter.

Basic searchkey’s are “trump election” and then “biden election”, very simple and some overlap. 5000 tweets are sampled.

The wordcloud is formed from taking counts of the most groups of 5 words.

The sentiment graph is taken using a method that attempts to account for the use of negation eg not like is considered negative but like is positive.
