Slide deck from my presentation at NYC's #Pydata 2012 conference - http://nyc2012.pydata.org/abstracts/#gephi
Are you interested in working with social data to map out communities and connections between friends, fans and followers? In this session I'll show ways in which we use the python networkx library along with the open source gephi visualization tool to make sense of social network data. We'll take a few examples from Twitter, look at how a hashtag spreads through the network, and then analyze the connections between users posting to the hashtag. We'll be constructing graphs, running stats on them and then visualizing the output.
