MetadataShow full item record
This poster introduces a creative method to analyze the relationship of Twitter followers at the Gordon W. Prange Collection, Special Collections and University Archives (SCUA), University of Maryland Libraries. By using Gephi, a visualization and exploration open-source software for network analysis, "diagrams" of the Prange Collection Twitter followers (both English and Japanese accounts) are generated. These easy-to-read visualizations enable the Prange staff member to make a data-driven decision to define the cultivable groups of people in order to make the Prange Collection social media initiative via Twitter more effective.
