TATR: Panda and CSV of Tweets


This recipe is part of the Text Analysis for Twitter Research (TATR) series. The recipe will show how to load and save a CSV (comma-separated values) file into a Panda data structure.

  • Open a new Jupyter Notebook and import the following libraries:
    • PANDAS
    • NUMPY
  • Create a Panda dataframe
  • Import your Twitter data into the following 4 columns:
    • Index
    • Date
    • Retweet_Count
    • Text
  • Write a function that reads the dataframe and converts it into a CSV
  • Write a function that reads the saved dataframe and loads the CSV back in
  • Display the results

The TATR library was presented as an academic poster in 2018’s Congress held in Regina, SK. For a PDF version of the full poster, please visit:
