NodeXL-ent (FSEM: Beyond the Selfie – Week 10 Final Post)

For my final comparison, I searched hurricane Katrina and hurricane Patricia. Surprisingly, hurricane Katrina actually had plenty of tweets using the key phrase, though I discovered this was because people were making comparisons of it to hurricane Patricia which explains its high amount of hits. Patricia had more than Katrina, due to its recency and scale, but I’m sure some of these same tweets included a mention of hurricane Katrina as well as Patricia. It seems that people who tweeted about these hurricanes were mostly the ones affected by it – telling about their family or their experience with dealing with the hurricanes which could lead one to conclude people who weren’t affected by it don’t give it as much attention.
