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?

@UNSMILibya: Official twitter account of UNSMIL, the United Nations Support Mission in Libya.
