Where is "Levels to include" option in Excel 2013?

Sep 8, 2014 at 11:08 PM
I'm trying to import a twitter users network that will include 2 levels of connections between nodes (i.e. the "User I'm interested in" + their followers + followers of followers). However, when I select import I don't see any option to specify the number of levels to include. Is this no longer an option in excel 2013? Am I using the wrong import function? (I'm selecting from the drop down menu on the far upper left of the screen). If anyone else has encountered this problem, please let me know how to fix it.

Thank you for the interest in NodeXL.

The book Analyzing social media networks with NodeXL: Insights from a connected world is not up to date with the most recent versions of NodeXL (the book was written with version .113 in mind, we are now shipping version .333).

One change in NodeXL has been to remove the ability to extract the Twitter "Follower" network. This was a response to changes in the Twitter API and access limits.

For background on this change, see the post: Over the edge: Twitter API 1.1 makes “Follows” edges hard to get
