Topsy has partnered with Twitter to create the Twitter Oscars Index— a daily measurement of people’s feelings towards 2013 Oscars nominees as expressed on Twitter. With the world’s largest public index of social media posts, Topsy has developed accurate sentiment analysis by studying over 100 billion tweets.
About the Index
Topsy calculates the daily Index for each of the Oscars nominees by analyzing the sentiment in Tweets mentioning the nominees. The Twitter Oscars Index values are shown in the graph beneath each nominee in the screen shot below, ranging from 0 to 100.
Topsy evaluates sentiment for all terms mentioned on Twitter each day, then compares how positively the nominees are talked about to calculate their sentiment score. Think of it as a percentile score; if a nominee has a score of 80, tweets about that nominee were more positive than roughly 80% of all other terms mentioned on Twitter. This greatly increases the accuracy of Topsy’s sentiment analysis.
Topsy is a realtime analytics platform powered by the social web. Every day, Topsy indexes, measures and live-ranks links, comments, pictures, videos and web pages from over a 400 million social posts to bring consumers and businesses the most relevant content and most valuable metrics from the social web.
