Importing/ exporting comments on tweets with NVivo?


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I am analyzing a specific Twitter profile. For this I would also like to import the comments and answers Twitter users write on tweets from the Twitter profile into NVivo (in order to export it into Excel). Is this possible with NCapture and NVivo and if so how?

Right now I need to click on every tweet to see if there have been comments on it.

 

Your help would be great and highly appreciated!

 

Best,

maya

Hi Maya,

 

That page you cannot capture as a dataset.

 

You can capture a User Stream as a dataset. For example, the @lenoxhill profile can be captured, i.e. click @lenoxhill and then click the Lenox Hill link in the Profile Summary dialogue box that appears.

 

You can also capture a # search as a dataset. For example, enter #Changetheending in the Search Twitter field and click Enter and you'll be able to capture as a dataset.

 

Regards,

Andrew

Hi Andrew,

 

thanks for the information and your help so far.

 

"You can capture a User Stream as a dataset. For example, the @lenoxhill profile can be captured, i.e. click @lenoxhill and then click the Lenox Hill link in the Profile Summary dialogue box that appears."

 

Can you tell me the location of where to click and where exactly the Profile Summary dialogue box appears? I downloaded the tweets from the profile already but the comments/answers are missing...

 

Best,

maya

Hi Maya,

 

 

Thanks for the follow up question. NCapture doesn't capture the comments/replies to a tweet on the profile page. Unfortunately this is a limitation of the way that Twitter lets NCapture collect data. To collect all the replies you would have to do each tweet individually.

 

 

I hope this helps.

 

 

Cheers

 

Simon
