70,000 Game of Thrones Tweets

I wanted to test the new Cloud Explorer developed by Texifter as part of the DiscoverText suite of text analysis tools. Since the revisions to the old tag cloud tool were inspired by comments from a Game of Thrones fan, Dr. R. Charli Carpenter, I decided to run the 70,000 Twitter Tweets I have in my archive through the new tool. After dropping out a few numbers and one offensive term, and changing the colors on a few items, this was my visualization:

Cloud Exlporer Visualization of Most Frequent Terms in 70,000 Game of Thrones Tweets.If after looking this visualization I then wanted to know why the term “getglue” was appearing more than 4,000 times (4,537 times to be precise), I can click on the term to search and see that @getglue is the frequently occurring Twitter address of a “social network for entertainment” that I had never heard of.

That is just one reason we call it DiscoverText!
