Making Sense of Big Data – Presentation of the “Marseille speaks, in & out, on Twitter” Project

Agata Ludzis-Todorov , Ludmila Girardi

Abstract

The present article seeks to present the conceptual and procedural findings of a brief sample research being part of a wider project called “How do cities speak about themselves on Twitter?”, guided during the Digital Methods Summer School at the University of Amsterdam in 2014. Our research project, called “Marseille speaks in & out”, contains an exploratory analysis of Twitter data and uses a cartography approach as an empirical method towards mapping comparisons. The objective of this methodology is to overlay the city’s scales in terms of different perspectives of the collected data: languages, locations and places in Marseille at an assumed period of time.
