Introducing: The Meltwater Data Importer for NodeXL Pro
The NodeXL Pro Meltwater Data Importer can create X (Twitter) networks from data sets that were collected via Meltwater. This commercial service provides access to X (Twitter) data along with other platform data sources. Meltwater customers can download their data sets as Excel files and easily conduct a social network and content analysis in NodeXL Pro.
To open the NodeXL Pro Meltwater Data Importer, select Excel > NodeXL > Data > Import > From Meltwater (Beta)…
Click on the “Browse” button to open your file explorer. Find a Meltwater Excel file of interest on your machine and click OK. Note that one data set may consist of several files with 20k rows each. You need to select all of these files at once.
During the data import NodeXL will then parse the tweets for connections between users and create a network data set. This step may take a few minutes.
Learn about the key feature “Task Automation” to easily perform a social network and content analysis with just a few clicks:
Brandwatch data sets provide metadata about each user who is actively tweeting like the user’s self-description, the location and the profile image. But the resulting network in NodeXL will contain users who are mentioned in tweets, but who are not tweeting themselves. The metadata from those users is not available. As a result the network map will contain a mix of images and colored disks.

You can also easily turn your network data set into a NodeXL Pro INSIGHTS Report via Excel > NodeXL Pro > Data > Export > to NodeXL Pro INSIGHTS…
