Climate Change on Twitter: Topics, Communities and Conversations about the 2013 IPCC Working Group 1 Report

Figure 3

Detecting three communities of Twitter users from conversational connections only (resolution: 1.9, modularity: 0.422, modularity with resolution: 1.104).

Each node represents a Twitter user. Size of nodes is correlated with that user's number of conversational connections. Detected communities are differentiated by color. Colors were selected randomly and should not be associated with political stance. Thickness of the edges reflects the number of conversational connections between the two usernames connected by the edge. Proximity between the nodes reflects local closeness, as nodes with more connections to each other than to the other nodes in the graph are clustered closer to each other.
