GOP candidates Twitter bias for major Texas & California citiesSubmitted by Hendrik on Fri, 05/11/2012 - 19:09
Hello Paulitos & Paulistas,
some of you may know my Twitter based Delegate Prediction tool for iOS GOP Unbound.
My server is 24/7 scanning Twitter for tweets on the Republican candidates. It's processing around 1 million tweets a day and translating it into a delegate count prediction for 2nd ballot. As my data collector is analyzing tweeter location data, I can go down to city level, as much as Twitter users maintain an accurate location tag.
Last Monday I started implementation of a data extract for Texas & California which matured over the past days. I now publish that data here:
Data on website is refreshed every full hour. The positive/negative bias of a tweet is calculated according to this 2012 PEW RESEARCH analysis.
