I wanted to create a word cloud infographic that explores The Donald’s tweets. I would like it to have a slider bar that adjusts the start and end of the date range. It would also be nice to have a color ramp for the words so that the emotive intent could be seen easily (to know what mood he’s in over a given time range). I’m going to ask someone at the New York Times if they might create this. I think it would be worth doing and it’s the kind of thing they might do. In searching for a contact, I found these articles:
I’m going to email Kevin Quealy and see if he can point me in the right direction. It wouldn’t be very hard, but it would need some very basic programming in a program like Python and I haven’t learned it yet. I know I’ll never really be important enough to get my own personal presidential insult, but at least I feel like I have something important in my life to which to aspire. Next up, we really should discuss James Bond, shouldn’t we?
