How Positive are Your Tweets? Sentiment Analysis with Python


Ever wonder if tweets that are on your time line are trending positively or negatively? Would you like to be able to see in real time if this is happening to you or to a specific topic or hashtag? This talk will show you how you can stream your tweets using a library called ‘tweepy’, store them in a data frame using ‘pandas’, and then extract subjectivity and polarity using textblob. Additionally, this talk will show you how this can be done with python with minimal lines of code compared to this same function being performed with R or SAS. After walking through the steps, we will perform an actual live demo of capturing tweets using audience participation.
