Twitter Data Mining for Political Sentiment

Audience: All


With heated political debates in the United States about the proposed southern border wall, I wanted to better understand how people living along the U.S./Mexico border really feel about the wall. Join my talk to learn how I used the Twitter API and R to mine tweets and tell the story of those populations closest to the border. I’ll walk through my techniques so you can use the same strategies to better understand the sentiment around your brand or service.
