EnTreeViz - An Energy-based Tree Visualization for identifying Influential Tweets

Online social networks are an important tool for communication and information exchange. Twitter is one of the most utilized social networks to propagate information or ideas. The engagement that a user has will determine how fast and far its tweet will propagate though the network. In this work, a model to quantify the influence of a tweet as a function of its replies is proposed. The model provides a tool to measure and visualize the propagation of a tweet according to its energy by relating basic physics concepts with tweet metrics. To demonstrate the effectiveness of the work, a group of public figures twitter accounts were tracked and analyzed
