Hi Tony, maybe I didn't explain it properly.
What I'm after is the association between the tweeter and the people mentioned in their tweets, regardless of whether it's just a mention, or a reply or a re-tweet, when a certain search term is present. So, say if I was to search for NodeXL on Twitter:
There are people who refer to other people in their tweets. Just to pick a few examples with what I would like to see as pairs extracted beneath: -
kremplo: RT: @nodexl: NodeXL v.98 ships, now with YouTube user network import
http://ping.fm/a4sgN #SNA #socialmedia - visualize vlogger connections
qualintitative: RT @marc_smith NodeXL v.98 ships, now with YouTube user network import
http://ping.fm/a4sgN #SNA #socialmedia
SameerPatel: Go Marc! RT @marc_smith: NodeXL v.98 ships, now w/ YouTube user network import
http://ping.fm/a4sgN > visualize vlogger connections
raquelrecuero: RT @marc_smith: NodeXL v.98 ships, now with YouTube user network import
http://ping.fm/a4sgN #SNA #socialmedia - visualize vlogger conne ...
Kueynislan: Para quem trabalha com análise de redes sociais, o @marc_smith anunciou que o @nodexl (software para ARS) agora tem twitter.
seekoeur: @sirchamallow @Alex_Riopel @Leslie_ @netintelligenz @dpillaert @adaptateur @CaddeReputation @gilldelia @VeroniqueR @markich @nitramf #NodeXL
So I'd like a list of pairs built up between the @tweeter and those @mentioned in the tweet for a given search term (in this case "nodexl").
I did this manually for a conference I went to where a specific #hashtag was used. I searched for the hashtag on Twitter and then manually created pairs (as above) to figure out who was the most "influential" Twitterer at the conference based
on who they referred to in their tweets (and of course, who referred to them in their tweets, and so on).
Does this make sense? I tried the option to import from a Twitter search, but it seems to miss some connections out and doesn't work in the way I propose above (yet still useful).
Maybe it could be another option if this doesn't fit with the current method?
Kind regards, hudmb.
