Twiplomats graph (Fruchterman-R)
The entire Twiplomacy network graphed and laid out in aesthetically-pleasing fashion. Click on the image for a version you might actually be able to read. A link to a PDF version is at the bottom of this article.

Inspired by Lada Adamic‘s excellent Coursera on Social Network Analysis I thought it might be interesting to try to graph the network of Twiplomats – the world leaders or diplomats on twitter. Simply to see who follows who, who the central nodes in the network are, and whether hubs or communities have developed.
