NRL Grand Final Twitter Data

Its over for another year…with the NRL Grand Final over I’ll have to think of new data to analyse until the 2015 season starts. The game on Sunday did provide some interesting twitter data. As I’ve found before, the twitter community surrounding #NRL is far more interconnected than the corresponding community for #AFL. And, once again we see the impact of the major media outlets. I’m still a bit surprised that the twitter communities don’t separate out by club loyalty but here is more evidence that sport unites us.

And here is the word frequency map. I like the impact that ’43’ had in the tweets. It was certainly a long time between drinks!
