Global Pulse in partnership with the Millennium Campaign is already using data analysis to filter millions of public tweets and map them against Post-2015 priority topics, to show which are being talked about the most. We wanted to see how these conversations compare to 2014 Davos-related tweets that also touch upon Post-2015 themes.
The resulting data visualization takes the Post-2015 pulse of Davos. This facilitates direct comparison between Twitter conversations around Davos and general Twitter conversations when considering 16 different Post-2015 topics. The left-hand side of the chart below is generated by any tweet that touches upon the 16 Post-2015 topics, whereas the right-hand side shows tweets that touch upon a Post-2015 theme and mention Davos or #WEF14. By filtering all tweets sent each day, in real-time and using a taxonomy of 25,000 keywords, the process identifies 300,000 relevant tweets per day. View the data visualization full screen.
