Exploring discussions of 'science' on Twitter by analysing 13.5 million tweets from 2011. I'll demonstrate how I've been using IPython notebook with the Pandas data analysis library to work with large data tables and time series data. You will see the strength of IPython Notebook for research in allowing you to keep notes interleaved with python code.
Starting with 13.5 million tweets from 2011 containing the word science: How I’ve explored the way people use ‘science’ on Twitter. The IPython notebook (http://ipython.org/notebook.html) is a great tool for research, allowing me to keep notes about my research interleaved with the python code. In addition, the Pandas python data analysis library (http://pandas.pydata.org/) supports working with large data tables with excellent support for time series data.
