Social Network Analysis: @JoeBiden vs @realDonaldTrump During the election day (3-4 Nov), Drone Emprit has collected conversation on Twitter about these two candidates. How is the social network analysis graph looked like?
Two monitoring projects are made, with these keyword settings:
- Trump: Trump, @realDonaldTrump
- Biden: Biden, @JoeBiden
VOLUME AND TREND From 3-4th of Nov, the volume of the conversation about Trump is always higher than about Biden. Trump 4,4M (66%) vs Biden 2,3M (34%).
SOCIAL NETWORK ANALYSIS GRAPH: TRUMP VS BIDEN
This SNA grph uses "retweet" as the link. Two big component subgraphs show Pro Trump and Pro Biden networks. Pro Trump subgraph is bigger than Biden's. Between them is a pool of MSM (mainstream media) accounts, closer to Biden's.
SNA: PRO TRUMP NETWORK This subgraph is actually consists of other smaller subgraphs, connected to the main network. Main top influencers: @realDonaldTrump,
SNA: PRO BIDEN NETWORK
Biden's subgraph is less crowded, mainly constructed by @JoeBiden's Ego Network, no "war room" related accounts as shown in @realDonaldTrump's, and supported by top influencers
From the two subgraphs above, we can see that Trump uses more and powerful social media armies compared to Biden. One of the impact is the popularity of @realDonaldTrump in social media is almost twice as @JoeBiden.
SNA: MAIN STREAM MEDIA
The graph also shows the pool of MSM, between the two subgraphs, such as @ABC, @CNN, @AP_Politics, @CBSNews, @NBCNews, @Reuters, @washingtonpost, @AJEnglish, @thehill, @MSNBC, @WSJ, etc. Although in between, however they are closer to Biden.

Although Trump's social media army is bigger and stronger, it turns out that the election results is different. Now, it is time for us to pray for Trump. May he becomes "lurah" and can "lungo kaji."
