Remove same Edges and vertices

Sep 16, 2016 at 7:35 PM
I want to collect data from twitter with a specific hashtag for one month!!
I am going to download data from twitter with nodeXL every 3 or 4 days, but i am wondering if there is a way to unite all the NodeXL archives in one.
Also if there is a way to remove from this archive the tweets (edges) and the users (vertices) which are exactly the same.

Thank you for the interest in NodeXL!

I understand your goal: you would like to glue slices of bread back into a loaf.

This is a error prone process.

It is possible, but it requires careful integration and then the data must be "uniqued". This is possible using the Excel Data Remove Duplicate rows feature.

An alternative is to use a product like the Connected Action Graph Server Importer which pulls data from a cloud collector. See:
