Twitter for global community building #icollab

14 Oct

During ALTC2013 I came across @mhawksey TAGSExplorer visual Twitter analysis tool. This is a powerful tool for analysing Twitter interaction via a Hashtag. We’ve setup TAGSExplorer to regularly update via the #icollab hashtag, which gives us a nice visual map of the conversations and interaction around the #icollab COP, click the screenshot below to view an interactive live version of the #icollab TAGSExplorer.

It’s interesting to see the community and conversations as a visual representation – @catherincronin is doing some great work with her @ct231 students currently, and the TAGSExplorer also reveals some interested peripheral participants and observers.

    Many thanks for running the TAGSExplorer analysis, Thom! It provided an interesting point of analysis and discussion for #ct231 students. I included your TAGSExplorer of #ct231 in a blog post describing how we are using Twitter: http://catherinecronin.wordpress.com/2013/10/02/teaching-with-twitter/

    Thanks again — and thanks to @mhawksey 🙂
