The Social Media Research Foundation has partnered with the Pew Internet Research Center to produce a report using NodeXL that documents the range of variation found in Twitter social media networks.

Created in collaboration with Lee Rainie from the Pew Internet Research Center, Ben Shneiderman from the University of Maryland, and Itai Himelboim from the University of Georgia, the report provides a guide to the major structures found when people tweet, reply and mention one another.

We found six patterns: Divided, Unified, Fragmented, Clustered and In and Out Hub and Spokes.
