UK nhs twitter conversation 11032013
Approx 5,000 active Twitter user accounts in the UK discussing the National Health Service (NHS) on the 11th of March 2013. Most tweets are directed to @Jeremy_Hunt Conservative MP for South West Surrey and Secretary of State for Health – but does he reply? or is he even reading the tweets?
I have also conducted a time series of the tweets – approx 410,000 collected from 3rd of March 2013 to 11th March 2013 on the NHS.
I have also conducted sentiment analysis of the tweets – approx 410,000 collected from 3rd of March 2013 to 11th March 2013 on the NHS.

Time series and Sentiment analysis – Webometrics
updated the #NHS and NHS Twitter User account number to 11,000 to create this image. As there are over 400,000 tweets associated with the 11,000 users I think my data my have a number of multiple counts for the same tweets. Something I can look at in the future – removing similar content.
