“All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace” Twitter Echochamber

I didn’t follow the twitter backchannel surrounding the second part of Adam Curtis’ documentary series All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace, but I did see a tweet that made me grab a snapshot of the friend connections between folk who were tweeting around it using the awobmolg hashtag. The following shows the major connected component (unconnected tweeps are filtered out) of a network built up from folk using the hashtag and how they’re connected (node size a function of authority, I think?):

I guess you could argue that this provides a glimpse over part of the UK’s tweeting digerati community, though I’m not sure what part…? Nodes are layed out using a force directed layout algorithm and clustered according to modularity group. I think I can spot culture/education sector, open gov/data advocacy and media folk clusters in there. If you want to look deeper, here’s the data set I grabbed as a Gephi/gdf file.

@mhawksey also managed to grab approx 1500 or so of the #awobmolg tagged tweets into the Archive tab of this spreadsheet: awobmolg tweets

And by the by, here are cotags used in tweets alongside the #awobmolg tagged tweets I captured:
