This visualization investigates the usage of words on Twitter related to the US Election 2012. It focuses on showing how many times the words appeared in tweets about candidates and relationships among them.

On the right side you see how many times different words have been used in the last week before the election. If you hoover over a single bubble you see how often it has been used referring to Obama (blue) and Romney (red). If you click on a bubble you see with which other words it was used in a same tweet. Moreover, the thickness of the connection indicates how often two words appeared together.
