August 2020

Access web-based visualisation for August 2020 here for 251,014 tweets. Download high-resolution image here. Download searchable PDF of the data visualisation here. Due to unavoidable reasons, tweets only include those published from 10 to 31 August.

Please note that following what was done last month, the visualisation of the tweets is anchored to Eigenvector Centrality for both the node and label sizes. This is in part due to the unprecedented conversational signatures and landscape on account of the Coronavirus and related conversations. More details here. By June, the Twitter conversational landscape also included content around the General Election, held on 5 August 2020.

I have also deleted the @sumanebot bot account /node from the visualisation.

Finally, unlike till May 2020, the 251,014 tweets includes all tweets with the #lka and #srilanka hashtags. Till May 2020, I excluded tweets that featured ‘cricket’, ‘sport’, ‘sports’, ‘match’ and ‘game’.
