Featured Network: Case study of Bundestag Twitter social media networks

Our featured network contains tweets that were sent from Members of the German Parliament during May 2022. Harald Meier, Chief Data Analyst at the Social Media Research Foundation, presented the latest findings from the NodeXL project "Mapping political networks within parliaments" at the PaCCS conference in Harvard last week. You can download the presentation here and have a look the corresponding NodeXL Pro INSIGHTS report. You can find many more network reports on this topic in NodeXL Graph Gallery. These maps and reports reveal the patterns of connections within and between twitter accounts of politicians from the different political parties in Germany. The results help track the date of political extremism and to highlight alliances between the parties.
