A web-based platform for monitoring, structuring and visualizing the online response to Rio 2016 Olympic Games on Twitter
During the Games, we monitored some Olympic topics (athletes, episodes, sports rivalry, statements) that were creating buzz on Twitter and other issues related to our research. Then we took a deeper insight into these topics and wrote comments about them in our blog, accompanied by images, charts and tweets examples.
At the same time, we identified athletes with better performance in their respective sporting discipline and then created a new Twitter search query which we called Atletas category. After that we designed a visualisation in which the size of the bubbles represents the amount of mentions each one of the identified athletes received during the competitions.
Finally, we implemented temporal sliders in visualisations that have not yet presented this feature.
These are OBSERVATÓR!O2016 main page and visualization pages as they looked like in version 3.0.:
