***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Hi all, I have Twitter data (i.e. followings, followers, Tweets, etc) for three countries' ministries (at least 35 ministries from each country). I am interested to check if the three countries differ statistically in terms of followings, followers, and Tweets. Which test should I be running? Can I also conduct some correlations analysis on this data, for example, correlation between followers and Tweets? Second, what kind of sampling strategy would you recommend to select a representative sample from the tweets for conducting semantic analysis? (Combined tweets of all the ministries are more than 170,000). Thank you for help in advance. -- Gohar Feroz khan, PhD Dept. of Media & Communication, YeungNam University, 214-1, Dae-dong, Gyeongsan-si, Gyeongsangbuk-do, South Korea, Zip Code 712-749 Mobile: +82-10-5510-8071 [log in to unmask] Research: http://laton.wikispaces.com/Dr.+Khan Class Wiki: http://onlinejournalism.wikispaces.com/; http://uandi.wikispaces.com/Syllabus; SlideShare: http://www.slideshare.net/goharferozkhan/edit_my_uploads<http://www.slideshare.net/goharferozkhan/edit_my_uploads> _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).
