New: NodeXL supports Twitter API 2.0 and Academic Twitter Access

NodeXL has recently updated and all users now have access to the new Twitter importer for API 2.0. The new API offers more metadata about Tweets, while the new Academic Twitter access expands access significantly!


We encourage academic users to apply for the Twitter Academic API access token.  If you are granted access, paste the token into NodeXL's new importer and your access will automatically be expanded to 10 million tweets per month with historical access to the start of the site in 2007.


You find more information about this topic in this blog post.

Team NodeXL

After many years with only remote connection, our group met in person in Tirana, Albania to discuss the current and future state of NodeXL.  We have many ideas for improvements coming soon!


Expect updates to the Twitter importer, YouTube importer, a new Spotify importer, improved performance, export to PowerBI (via NodeXL Pro INSIGHTS) and more!


Have a suggestion for improvements?
