How does information propagate in Twitter's network?
Twitter can be represented as a directed social network where nodes are the users of the service and edges represent "following" relationships. In NETS 312
, we provide tools to study the propagation of information over the Twitter social network. For example, we consider the set of users (i.e., nodes in the network) who mention a particular tag in some chronological order, their distribution over the network, and the presence/absence of edges between them.
