Course Description

People around the globe make over 500 million tweets per day. So, one can only imagine the sheer volume of data available with Twitter. This data is a treasure trove of information. However, one needs to know how to gather this data and then conduct the needed analysis.

This course provides all the information regarding

  • How to gather data from Twitter using R Programming
  • How to conduct basic analysis of the data gathered from Twitter
  • How to extract the Emotion expressed in the Tweets gathered

The course also discusses associated APIs required for analysing Twitter data like Google Maps API.

To take full advantage of the course, it will be required to create a developer account with Twitter. All the necessary steps for getting a Twitter Developer Account is provided in the course. However, it must be noted that it is the discretion of Twitter whether they will grant a Twitter Developer account against an application. Nevertheless, all the contents of the course can be followed and understood without a Twitter Developer account. Only difference will be that the data extracted from Twitter will be restricted. With limited data, the analysis possible will be limited.

It is also desirable to have a Google Maps account to be able to take full advantage of this course. Not having a Google Maps account will not impede in learning the concepts discussed in the course. However, there will be severe limitations on the data that can be fetched from Twitter.

We will use R Programming throughout this course. Thus, this course requires that the participants are conversant with R Programming.

If you prefer any other programming language (like. Python, etc.), then you can use this course to learn all the nuances of analysing Twitter Data and apply the same in programming in your language of your preference.
