Learning to blog : A Twitter conversation charted (
3 points by RiderOfGiraffes to blog math programming visualization on Jan 30, 2020 | 3 comments

I have trouble following any Twitter (or other!) conversation that becomes at all popular. So I wrote a tool to produce charts of same to help me visualise the content.

First cut, much wrong with it, but I thought I'd share the product, and this particular discussion.

Please note ... I'm not a front-end person, the HTML/SVG code is crap, the code to produce it is crap, and the system is spit-n-baling-wire, user-hostile, and has just so many things that could be included.

But it works for me, and if it inspires someone else, have at it!

That's neat. How did you actually make it?


Got the content by scraping web-Twitter and parsing the content and links, then created a DOT file and let GraphViz do the heavy lifting.
