PoliVolume visualizes tweets during election campaigns, currently the 2019 Alberta provincial election.
Tweets are sorted among political parties according to the issues voters trust them most to handle. Visualizing their volume shows which party is leading the conversation with their agenda.
PoliVolume is the first in a series of visualizations around social media discussions focused on political issues, elections, and campaigns. It does not predict the success of political campaigns. Instead, it captures and showcases the volume of online twitter discussions, categorized by political parties and the associated issues voters trust them on. The goal is to supplement infrequent polls to identify which campaigns' agendas and issues are dominating the conversation. More information around the research driving these analyses are available here. You can contact us here.
