Video: Using NodeXL to map the “digg” mentioning Twitter population

This is a brief demo video about NodeXL analyzing Twitter social network connections among a group of users who all mentioned the term “digg”.

2009 – November – NodeXL – Demo – Mapping Twitter Social Networks “Digg” from Marc Smith on Vimeo.

This is a good demonstration of several features in NodeXL: social media network importers (in this case from Twitter), the use of a variety of layouts, auto-fill column mappings, and dynamic filters to reveal some important structures, groups and people in the graph.

Here is the source data in a NodeXL workbook: 2009 – November – NodeXL – Twitter Digg 3

Note!  Excel has issues with security and workbooks.  The easiest way to use that file is to open a blank NodeXL template and use the “Import from older workbook ” feature to pull the data into a workbook that your copy of Excel *can* trust.

  1. This is an excellent video–very helpful. Could you please give a bit more detail about how to import the data. I keep getting an error message: “Unable to connect to the remote server” and “An invalid argument was supplied 128.121.146.235:80”
