  9. 9. Research Objectives• Measuring the Italian participatory «couch potato» (favorite show/episodes, level of “participation”)• Developing a technique aimed at detecting key moments (during the season and within episodes) for later discourse/content analysis• Developing a statistical model aimed at predicting the audience of an episode from Twitter activity
  10. 10. Dataset *• From 30th of August 2012 to 10th March 2013• 11 political talk-shows• Hashtags: #ballarò or #ballaro, #portaaporta, #agorarai, #ultimaparo la, #serviziopubblico, #inmezzora, #infedele or #linfedele, #ottoemezzo, #omnibus, #inonda, #piazzapulita• Raw n. of Tweets collected: 1,703,064 * at the time of writing
  11. 11. Dataset *• Subset of Tweet created during the airing time of the episodes (+15 mins)• 607 aired episodes, with respective average audience and rating as estimated by Auditel• Total n. of Tweets in the subset: 1,126,787 * at the time of writing

  23. 23. Conclusions• A note on data gathering with Twitter• It seems that each talk-shows develop a peculiar relationship with their online audience (Piazza Pulita)• Clustering appear to be a promising way to discover key episodes in a seasons• The campaign made results more interesting but also more difficult to predict
  24. 24. Conclusions• Audience and Tweet-per-minute are significantly correlated• A model based on TPM only seems to be unable to efficiently predict the episode audience• Metrics extrapolated form Twitter activity could be successfully used to increase the precision of the prediction based on average past audience
  25. 25. To-do• Extrapolating more Twitter metrics form the dataset (RT, Reply)• Visualizing, clustering and using these metrics (or a combination of) as predictors• Digging into a more detailed analysis of one program along the season or specific key episodes• Defining a “ladder” of participatory “couch potato” Access, Interaction, Participation (Read, RT, Reply, Original Tweets that influence the program schedule and topics
