Check out our visualization of trending election-related tags on Tumblr! We built this during our Union Metrics Hackday yesterday.
Check out the live version here
These are the top tags in Tumblr posts and reblogs about the election. Our visualization classifies tags according to political party, so Republican-related posts are red, Democrat-related posts are blue, and non-affiliated posts are gray. The size of the circle relates to how many posts have included that tag in the past few seconds.
The visualization refreshes in real time according to what’s trending right now, and is built off the full firehose of Tumblr data by Union Metrics. We make Union Metrics for Tumblr, which is Tumblr’s preferred analytics provider.
