With this Plugin for Gephi, ParadigmaLabs wants to provide the community with an useful tool to analyze Twitter information. We have encapsulated all the complexity behind a simple button. A retweet is one of the main actions for information propagation, and now you can make your own analysis in real time by means of Gephi and the Retweet Monitor plugin.
It´s internal mechanisms are fairly simple. The software will connect to the TwitterStream, then apply(if desired) a content filter. All the information gathered will be displayed by Gephi, and you can then apply the standard algorithms and layouts in order to create a representative visualization.
Since too much information could be retrieved from the Twitter Stream, the plugin provides a method to remove information from the graph.
