A design and policy proposal for improving the democratic quality of social media Marc Smith…
Many users have data sets of collected tweets that they would like to import into NodeXL for social media network analysis.
In many cases these data sets are in non-standard formats and have a variety of data elements.
Processing these files has often been difficult or impossible if essential data elements are not present.
In version 422 and later in NodeXL Pro a new feature is now available to help with these issues: Import from Twitter TweetID List Network
Using this importer, It is now possible to copy a column of Tweet IDs and paste them into this dialog box to collect all the data fresh from Twitter.
Users with existing collections of Tweets can import them into a spreadsheet to extract the column of Tweet IDs.
This method helps to ensure the quality of the imported data.
