Tweet Topic Explorer (Neoformix) is a bubble chart illustrating the most popular themes discussed by a specific user-chosen Twitter account.

Technically, the content of the recent tweets is analyzed by a so-called Word Cluster Diagram algorithm, which groups together the most frequently used words in a collection of tweets by their thematic relationship. The resulting graph can then be interactively explored and filtered by selecting individual keywords.

What are you tweeting about?

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    The only Tweets I’d be interested in are those of Andy Borowitz, and I can go to his website any time to check out the latest LOL commentary.

    So basically what your graph is telling us is that the thing most people “tweet” about is “tweeting”?

    U.S. Runs Surveillance Operations Based on Secret Interpretations of Patriot Act
    May 26th, 2011

    Via: Wired:

    You may think you understand how the Patriot Act allows the government to spy on its citizens. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) says it’s worse than you’ve heard.

    Congress is set to reauthorize three controversial provisions of the surveillance law as early as Thursday. But Wyden says that what Congress will renew is a mere fig leaf for a far broader legal interpretation of the Patriot Act that the government keeps to itself — entirely in secret. Worse, there are hints that the government uses this secret interpretation to gather what one Patriot-watcher calls a “dragnet” for massive amounts of information on private citizens; the government portrays its data-collection efforts much differently.

    “We’re getting to a gap between what the public thinks the law says and what the American government secretly thinks the law says,” Wyden tells Danger Room in an interview in his Senate office. “When you’ve got that kind of a gap, you’re going to have a problem on your hands.”

    What exactly does Wyden mean by that? …”

    BR I am a little surprised you would actually ask this question.

    What do people fantasize about when they are masturbating?

    Are the answers really that important?

    Garbage in — garbage out?

    I am anxiously awaiting the day Twitter is just another memory like Lycos, AOL and Myspace

    @fprtwit – notes about natural phenomenon observed during my daily walks around Fresh Pond Reservation in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Learn about how a Grackle did a hostile takeover of a Robin’s nest at Post 214, the continuing saga of the pair of Green Herons at Black’s Nook, and more.
