User's networks

Oct 12, 2016 at 1:42 PM

I have a twitter account that I would like to extract my followers and followees networks and their friends and friends of friends (level 2.0). I have older version of the NodeXl and keeps crashing and unfortunately there is no option for the user's network in the basic version. Therefore, I was wondering if you can let me know how I can extract user's network in order to visualize my users network and find out most influential people in their network.

Your advice and help will be appreciated.

Kind regards,

Thank you for the interest in NodeXL!

Twitter follows and friends connections are available at a very slow rate.


NodeXL Basic does not have an importer for the follower network.

NodeXL Pro can import the follows and friends network at the rate limit imposed by Twitter.

Twitters rate limit makes extracting the follower network very slow. But it is doable (some collections may take several days).
