Observing Malaysian Social Media


with 2 comments

Politweet is a non-partisan research firm analysing interactions among Malaysians using social media. We have been monitoring politics and activism on Twitter since 2009 and expanded to include Facebook starting December 2012.

Our work has focused on:

  1. Researching the socio-political interest of Malaysians on Twitter. Some research areas are:
    • Determining the number of Malaysians interested in politics and domestic issues (the Twitterverse)
    • Estimating the partisanship of Malaysians on Twitter
    • What topics get the most response?
    • The effectiveness of social movements on Twitter
    • Creating a predictive model to identify trends
    • Discovering behaviour patterns and social groups within the Twitterverse
    • Establishing metrics to describe influence
  2. Identifying influential Malaysians and politicians on Twitter
  3. Developing analytical tools for Twitter research
  4. Creating interactive, data-driven sites about socio-political topics

  2. Hi,

    I am pretty interested in your postings and findings. I am a postgraduate researcher and would be interested to use some of your data for research purposes. Perhaps some collaboration or volunteering work. Looking forward to some feedback from you. Thanks.
