Revisiting Emergent Social Positioning

Prompted by an email request, I’ve revisited the code I used to generate emergent social positioning maps in Twitter as an iPython notebook that reuses chunks of code from, as well as the virtual machine used to support, Matthew A. Russell’s Mining the Social Web (2nd edition) [code]).

You can see the notebook here: emergent social positioning iPython notebook [src].

As a reminder, the social positioning maps show folk commonly followed by the followers of a particular twitter user.
