visualization idea

Which political points of view receive the most reactions in the Twitterverse of the German politicians in the Bundestag? As a measure of the extent of the reaction, the number of retweets received by individual politicians is measured. The visualizations show in different ways which tweets and the associated political positions, have received the most retweets, have received the most reactions.

data collection

The data collection includes all members of the Bundestag who have a Twitter account and is carried out every 15 minutes. The analysis focuses on the comparison of the number of tweets of the members of the Bundestag and the number of retweets and likes received. The tweet rate (overview table) shows the arithmetic mean for the last 30 days. The number of hashtags is determined by an analysis of the tweet text (280 characters).

tweet beat logo

The Tweet Beat logo visualizes the like-retweet rate of the 10 tweets that received the most retweets in the last hour. The intensity of coloring and pulse reflect the value of the like-retweet rate.
The realization of the logo as a data visualization, as a data driven design, strengthens the conceptual connection to the work “berlin retweets” and lends an additional level of identity.

parties

The CDU (Christian Democratic Union of Germany) is the major catch-all party of the centre-right in German politics. The party therefore claims to represent “Christian-social, liberal and conservative” elements. The former party leader Angela Merkel is the current Chancellor of Germany.
The SPD (Social Democratic Party of Germany) is a social-democratic political party in Germany. The SPD sees itself as a “left-wing people's party”. Established in 1863, the SPD is by far the oldest existent political party represented in the German Parliament and was one of the first Marxist-influenced parties in the world.
The AfD (Alternative for Germany) is a right-wing to far-right political party in Germany. Founded in April 2013, the AfD became the third-largest party in Germany after the 2017 federal election.The party has been described as a German nationalist and Eurosceptic party.
Die Grünen (The Greens) is a green political party in Germany.It rose out of the anti-nuclear energy, environmental, peace, new left, and new social movements of the late 20th century. The party focuses on ecological, economic, and social sustainability.
Die Linke (The Left) is a democratic socialist political party in Germany. The party is the most left-wing party of the six represented in the Bundestag, and has been called far-left by some news outlets. Through the PDS, the party is the direct descendant of the ruling party of the former East Germany (GDR), the Socialist Unity Party of Germany (SED).
The FDP (Free Democratic Party) is a liberal and classical liberal political party in Germany. The FDP strongly supports human rights, civil liberties and internationalism. The party is traditionally considered centre-right. Since the 1980s, the party has firmly pushed economic liberalism and has aligned itself closely to the promotion of free markets and privatization.
