Report: Twitter Use at #WHA2018

From the report:

For the past few years following the Western History Association’s annual meeting I’ve been collecting Twitter analytics on users that tweet with the conference hashtag. We just wrapped up #wha2018 and it’s time to see what’s in the data. We spent the week in San Antonio, which, strangly enough, was colder than here in Omaha. Thanks, Texas.


First off, and most simply, we can see the frequency of tweets over the past nine days. These are aggregated using three-hour intervals about #wha2018 over time. Unsurprisingly, there’s a slight build-up before the conference began on Thursday and cyclical activity thereafter.
