ORSP Faculty Forum - Dr. Ezgi Akar | WisCommunity

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs' Faculty Forum highlights the research done by faculty and staff at UW-Eau Claire and more recently members from Mayo Clinic. Presentations last roughly 30 minutes followed by a brief discussion. Dr. Akar: This study explores the factors contributing to online users' network centrality in a network on Twitter in the context of a social movement about the "clear the shelters" campaign across the United States. First, we extracted users' various features and network centralities (betweenness, closeness, eigenvector, in-degree, and out-degree) from a Twitter network of 13,270 users and 24,354 relationships. Then, we developed a research model and tested the impact of various user-related features on users' network centralities.
