During the AnalyticsWeek in Boston, March 24 – 28, 2014, Klurig Analytics, as a Silver sponsor, handled the social media and social media analytics for the event. This primarily involved keeping a live tweet stream including both text and pictures of speakers, moderators and panelists as well as handling the social media analytics. In two previous posts, we first discussed the event on a day per day basis, and secondly, we used twitter analysis and text mining on the Twitter feed of the event.
