This project uses various sets of Twitter accounts to examine:

  • To what extent there is overlap between followers of similar and/or competing accounts?
  • Does overlap, or lack of it, reveal any social listening behaviors? Does polarization exist in followership?
  • Are there correlations between the Twitter adoption dates, social listening behaviors, and political and social events?
