Figure 4

Detecting communities from conversational connections with additional coding by views on climate change.

Twitter users were manually coded according to the content of their tweets and Twitter biography within the population of tweets analyzed. Each node represents a Twitter user. Size of nodes is correlated with that user's number of conversational connections. Climate change unsupportives, purple; climate change supportive, red; climate change neutral, green; did not tweet, light blue. Colors were selected randomly and should not be associated with political stance.
