Multidimensional Outlier Detection in Interaction Data: Application to Political Communication on Twitter

Abstract : We introduce a method which aims at getting a better understanding of how millions of interactions may result in global events. Given a set of dimensions and a context, we find different types of outliers: a user during a given hour which is abnormal compared to its usual behaviour, a relationship between two users which is abnormal compared to all other relationships, etc. We apply our method on a set of retweets related to the 2017 French presidential election and show that one can build interesting insights regarding political organization on Twitter.
