Research Question

Spanish revolution: comparing the mediascape of commercial social media (twitter and facebook) and autonomous social media (tomalaplaza, lorea networks: n.1.cc, network.takethesquare.net, red.democraciarealya.es) used by the 15 May movement (DRY, acampadas) during the spanish revolution

Steps in Method

first aim: visualize the mediascape / communicational ecology of the “spanish revolution” (co-linking)

second aim: compare and analize how each media (commercial/alternative) refers to the other one (issues and co-wording?)

Findings

Data sets - link analysis:

Autonomous Social Medias -

Two steps -

1) Issue crawler (snowball - get overall image of clusters and networks); Google link referral (see how many people link to red.democraciarealya.es, for example) -
Results: Issuecrawler says no networks could be found!! checking
2) Applying the Issue discovery tool (http://tools.issuecrawler.net/beta/issueDiscovery/) to two sets of links (Toma la plaza + SNS autonomous) producing a long list of issues
Those have been put in Tag cloud to wordle tool (https://tools.issuecrawler.net/beta/tagcloudToWordle/) and then into wordle in order to generate two tags clouds, attached below
Issues identified: not clear how the issue discovery toll works, therefore the selection of issues has to be refined (FAQ comes as the most common issue for the analysis of the autonomous SNS - this is not logical +
there is a need to refine the issues identified and bundle them together - Anyhow, the lexical camp visualized in quite realistic and underlines important dimensions of the #spanish revolution - ggeneral assemblies / comissions /activities /collective decision taken - territorial places - reference to different type of technologies.

1. twitter scrape - decide which hashtags, scrape with expand tinyurl activated - https://tools.issuecrawler.net/beta/twitterScraper/
2. link harvester - get the links - https://tools.issuecrawler.net/beta/harvestUrls/
-----see who they link to? do they reference tomalaplaza and autonomous media or mainstream websites?

1. Copying source code of twitter results from 14th may until 30th of May, first round, using the tool harvester (https://tools.issuecrawler.net/beta/harvestUrls/) /doesn't look to work, no url feedback ;-(
2. Copying manually more or less 155 links in the https://twitter.com/#!/democraciareal and putting it inside the harvester to have a clean list of hyperlinks
