In honor of International Women’s Day and because I’ve always wanted to play with Twitter data, I pulled 10,000 tweets during the day that used the hashtag #InternationalWomensDay. I cleaned things up a bit using pretty standard text mining analytics to generate the following stuff.

What are people saying?


Here’s a simple word cloud reflecting words that appear most often throughout these tweets. In addition to some cleaning, the hashtag itself has been filtered out so everything pictured here comes from the body of each tweet.
