Introduction to Sentiment Sweep

Sentiment Sweep aims to captcha the mood of the internet, either overall or towards a specific topic. It does this by analysing real-time Twitter data, and calculating how positive or negative each Tweet it.

A series of dynamic data visualisations are then used to illustrate the results, and find trends between sentiment and other factors such as time of day, location, topic, country, people etc

It's open sauce, and the code and documentation can be viewed on GitHub
