Identifying Twitter Tribes

I have developed a method of grouping Twitter accounts and classifying those groups using their language. This was covered by The Guardian and The Daily Mail. The sample shown was a broad sample of the complete Twitter web site, it is now possible to target the sampler to more specific groups.

Network of groups found on Twitter. Each group has words which they use unusually commonly. These words identify the group and some are shown. The links are sized according to the number of @mentions between the linked groups.
