Visualizing Áras Election


  1. Hi Martha,
    Thats very inter­est­ing. Wouldn’t it be inter­est­ing to see what the data looks like rel­at­ive to media sources? I.e. does ‘RTE’ reflect broadly neg­at­ive sen­ti­ment or con­ver­sa­tions and, for example, does ‘MRBI’ reflect pos­it­ive sen­ti­ment? Tak­ing it a step fur­ther how about indi­vidual presenters…‘Marian’,‘Vincent’,‘George’,‘Sean’ etc.

    Just a thought.

I’ll take a look this week and see if I can put together some sen­ti­ment data from news sites.

    Thanks again Greg.
