On Twitter conversations
daily tweets number
An individual daily maximum -590;
for all 28 days - 5,604;
the mean daily tweet rate -0.9410.
Identify multi-users exchanges;
Determine how many users typically engage in them;
Identify their time-frame and pace;
Calculate how balanced they are.
Determine how many users typically engage in them
Users involvement in different groups
9hrs magic number for distinct conversations
conversations are mostly fast-paced and balanced
multi-user exchanges can be found thanks to data sparsity, similar threshold of 9hrs
most exchanges dominated by 1 or 2 users
but also some evidence of balanced (up to 5 ) multi-user exchange
FFriday clustering coefficients visible
Mean maximum conversation contribution as a function of minimum contribution.
Distribution of time intervals between consecutive tweets from individual users
