Important note: All the visualisations render best and tested on the latest versions of Google Chrome and Firefox. The Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser also renders the visualisations.

The visualisations were created on Gephi and exported using the SigmaExport plugin.

The Twitter search excludes capture of tweets with ‘cricket’, ‘sport’, ‘sports’, ‘match’ and ‘game’ occurrences. Captures done using Twitter public API at least once a day, every day, including weekends.

Unless otherwise noted, the high-resolution network graphs show labels scaled to Eigenvector Centrality and node sizes anchored to Betweenness centrality. Layout using ForceAtlas 2. The colours, generated by Gephi, are based on the modularity algorithm, which breaks the (Twitter) network into communities. In the context of this SNA, anchored to Twitter, each community is like a group, anchored to an idea, issue, individual or institution. Another way to look at each colour is to think of each node with the same colour as an in-group, and all others, with different colours, as out-groups.

Each high-resolution image, in PNG format, is 10,000 X 10,000 px, or around 8.6 ft x 8.6 ft.
