One of the focuses of the Trails lab is visualizing social media data for human consumption. The massive amounts of data generated during events or through trending topics are too large to be easily navigated or consumed by a human, so we turn to visualizations to order the data in some comprehensible form. The following are graphs of networks from various events and topics on Twitter. Nodes in these graphs may represent Twitter accounts, tweets or hashtags, and edges co-occurences or manual connections made by users.
