Background Twitter is a veritable source of social media data. It is unhindered by the same privacy concerns as Facebook because of its cavalier attitude towards social networking and less intrusive data collection. Twitter has become quite popular amongst journalists since its inception, as well as politicians and other figures with political power. I am interested in the interactions journalists have on Twitter. There are two classes of users, blue checkmarks and non checkmarked.
Background I have a home surveillance kit I bought from Costco. It’s made by FLIR, who have a major market share in surveillance and optics in the US. The surveillance kit features software for viewing cameras, but its not very good.
