Twitter Map Talk
May 11, 2013
Time: 4.15 - 5pm
Location: Ground Floor Lecture Theatre, Roberts Building, Malet Place, London, WC1E 7JE
UCL doctoral researcher Ed Manley will be discussing the Twitter language map he and CASA lecturer Dr James Cheshire created, which was featured in the Guardian last month.
Ed will talk about some of the techniques used to detect the languages, some of the problems they encountered, and what conclusions (if any!) can be drawn about London’s inhabitants – and their tweeting habits – using the data.
