Sentiment Analysis of Australian political hashtags

Sentiment Analysis

It's time for another post from my home blog. This is another #Python #microservice, which ties together some #NaturalLanguageProcessing (using the nltk toolkit, the @Twitter search API and #SentimentAnalysis with some basic #MachineLearning. To visualise all this I used the C3.js charting library, and put together some more JavaScript for periodic (30 second) and flowing visuals.

I'm going to return to this project shortly, to update the tweet source corpus. The source I've used for this project is based on British tweets, and while Australia and Britain share many things, I'm not completely confident that our sarcasm and cynicism is reflected in the corpus.
