With the horrible attack in Paris in the Charlie Hebdo office, we are experiencing once more a new way to be informed about last news, this time powered by Twitter. It is amazing how fast people are sharing thoughts, photos, links, and absolutely everything. It thus becomes the data set of the world population’s mind in real time.
In this post I am going to show how to query tweets and do some simple analysis using IBM SPSS Modeler and the new SPSS Predictive Extensions based on R. All this analysis…without any coding at all! We are going to do 3 things:
– Create a Word Cloud with a new WordCloud node based on the R wordcloud package.
-Integration with the new R package HTMLWidgets. This package enable you to add new types of HTML output to R Markdown documents. There are different types of widgets like maps, charts, 3D scatterplots and more.
