doing some data analysis on the glitchart community
this is the result of pulling 40 posts from glitchgifs, then looking at the sources of the posts, and then pulling 40 posts from all original source blogs, and then plotting those as a network.
so in the network, you can see nodes that point to themselves (loops) which are primarily people that post original content and don’t reblog much (lechedemipalo,stallio,etc), and the other cliques (like sofachips) are probably people that make and reblog content
this is really only a small amount of data used, i could have scraped way more post data, but then i would have had to do more adjustments to the visualization to accomodate more data!
