Along with my collaborator Olivier Beauchesne, who blogs at olihb.com, I released a twitter sentiment analysis project on tweets related to the Quebec upcoming elections. The project is available in french at www.indicequebec.com.

It features:

-sentiment (positive vs negative) analysis on tweets for the last hour / day / week / month

-trending topics, tweets, users and hashtags

-network visualization of twitter users by considering users they mention and retweets

The project received a little media coverage from traditional french canadian media channels, like Radio-Canada’s article:

Many thanks to those who helped us launch this micro-project!
