    Help me, please.
    If I want to “chase” a word or an institution, do I need to delimit a specific site? Can not I search the network in general?
    Where do I put the page ID to parse it?



    I am trying to import data from twitter users network. While doing so I came across two options:

    1. Basic Network
    2. Basic Network Plus Friends and Followers

    Can you please explain me the difference between the two of these?

    Also, what different data will I see in my worksheet if I select second option.

    The second option adds the edge type “Follows” to the Edges worksheet in your dataset. It will get the followers from all users that are detected in your search query. The API will usually return the most recent followers first.

    This option can easily max out the capacities of NodeXL and Excel. And it will take a long time to download the data. You can of course limit the number of followers to be collected, but still you might end up with more than a million edges e.g. if there are 1000 users in your network with an average of 1000 followers. That is way too much to handle for NodeXL.

    There may be special use cases for this option, e.g. download data, export as .gexf and then analyze in Gephi. But we generally recommend to not use this option.
