Election week hashtag analyses
I’ll be continuing to monitor the hashtags, but here is where we stand on Monday morning before the Wednesday election:
#secki2013 for the weekend – pretty dead, but probably will pick up in the coming days
#secki2013 for the past 10 days
Opposition blogger muntezir is the most powerful tweeter in the network, but groups 3 and 4 are pro-government forces and are really loud on this hashtag.
#azvote13 for the weekend
In this hashtag, the pro-government forces (group 2) are “winning” – being louder than the opposition forces. Although muntezir in group 4 and group 3 being a lot of oppositionists and their foreign friends are still holding strong.
#azvote13 since mid-September
This tells a great story – while the pro-government forces (group 1) are very loud on this hashtag, all the other big clusters are very well connected and spreading information widely.
