News Dissemination on Twitter and Conventional News Channels

Abstract : Big Data is "things that one can do at a large scale that cannot be done at a small one". Analyzing flows of news events that happen worldwide falls in the scope of Big Data. Twitter has emerged as a valuable source of information where users post their thoughts on news events at a huge scale. At the same time traditional media channels also produce huge amount of data. This paper presents means to compare the propagation of the same news topic through Twitter and news articles, both important yet varied sources. We present visual means based on maps to make it possible to visualize the flow of information at different level of temporal granularity. We also provide an example and how the flow can be interpreted.
