1. Introduction: Hacking on Twitter Data

Chapter 1. Introduction: Hacking on Twitter Data

Although we could get started with an extended discussion of specific social networking APIs, schemaless design, or many other things, let’s instead dive right into some introductory examples that illustrate how simple it can be to collect and analyze some social web data. This chapter is a drive-by tutorial that aims to motivate you and get you thinking about some of the issues that the rest of the book revisits in greater detail. We’ll start off by getting our development environment ready and then quickly move on to collecting and analyzing some Twitter data.
