Twitter Data Analytics (Book & Code Examples)

Twitter Data Analytics (Book & Code Examples) | Bits 'n Pieces on Big Data | Scoop.it

Social media has become a major platform for information sharing. Due to its openness in sharing data, Twitter is a prime example of social media in which researchers can verify their hypotheses, and practitioners can mine interesting patterns and build realworld applications. This book takes a reader through the process of harnessing Twitter data to find answers to intriguing questions. We begin with an introduction to the process of collecting data through Twitter's APIs and proceed to discuss strategies for curating large datasets. We then guide the reader through the process of visualizing Twitter data with realworld examples, present challenges and complexities of building visual analytic tools, and provide strategies to address these issues. We show by example how some powerful measures can be computed using various Twitter data sources. This book is designed to provide researchers, practitioners, project managers, and graduate students new to the field with an entry point to jump start their endeavors. It also serves as a convenient reference for readers seasoned in Twitter data analysis.

Finding the Zebra in a Herd of Ponies- A new look at anomaly detection

Finding the Zebra in a Herd of Ponies- A new look at anomaly detection | Bits 'n Pieces on Big Data | Scoop.it
The second publication in the O’Reilly Practical Machine Learning series, subtitled A New Look at Anomaly Detection by Ted Dunning and me, is being released this week.  In the previous book, which focused on practical approaches to recommendation, we started with the idea that everyone thinks “I want a pony”.  Here in the second book, what we want is to find the outlier, the zebra in a herd of ponies, the fish swimming against the school of fish, the rare event.

Throughout the book, you'll find many examples of data science applications implemented in the R language. For R beginners a Getting Started with R chapter is included, but it does get into some fairly in-depth topics including sentiment analysis of Twitter data, working with data in Hadoop via RHadoop, and creating information maps. R code is sprinkled liberally for your own use, and available to download (also under an open-source license) from GitHub.
