Manual Emotion/Sentiment Analysis of Trump/Obama/Modi-Twitter Account by General Twitter Data

Twitter plays a big role to reach any people without interacting with them. Any people can follow anyone’s profile by just clicking on the “Follow”-Button. An enormous quantity of noticeable people from Social or Political Background, Organizations, Companies, Business Giants uses twitter accounts. As I have already mentioned in my previous blog that the keyword is very important during tweets as in twitter we can easily link them with all others latest tweets from renowned accounts. Now sometime the share market also goes up and down depends on some renowned tweets. Some of my students are also doing research on how the share value depends on the latest tweets from some renowned twitter accounts.

Twitter is providing a link by which you can analyse the insights of your own account. You just required clicking on the following link:

https://analytics.twitter.com/user/dayonmyplate/tweets

Though here in the username “dayonmyplate” given, but when you copy the link and paste it on your browser, it will directly take your own username (you should be logged in into your account before pasting the above link). Twitter will never give any tool to analyse someone else’s account.

Now in general we can get some data from anyone’s twitter account. They are:

1.    No of total Tweets:

It denotes total how many tweets this account holder did till now after joining the Twitter account.

2.    Following:

How many Accounts are there to whom this account holder follow.

3.    Followers:

How many Accounts follow this account.

4.    Likes:

How many posts are there which have been liked by this account.

5.    Date of Joining:

On which month this account created.

6.    Last Tweet Date and Time:

The above 5 parameters are very important to generalize one account’s emotion partially. The following parameters with all of its probable interpretation given in a tabular format.

I have constructed the above analysis depends on some general elucidation. The motivation is not to hurt anyone’s personal sentiment. Hope you all will understand that. Three popular accounts have been taken for a comparison study. The compared data shown in “Bold”- font within the table. The account of “Barak Obama” has been run by Organizing Action Staff when he was the President (Source: Twitter) whereas the other two accounts may be managed by the account holder personally. Depends on the information given in the table above, we can easily analyse each and every Twitter Accounts Characteristics and Behaviours.
