Social Analytics on Twitter and Xbox Live data (Halo 4 release)

POC: What are the Dutch gamers tweeting on Twitter during Halo 4’s launch?

I’ve created a proof-of-concept to analyze real-time Twitter data (Social Analytics), Xbox Live statuses and make use of Microsoft’s Business Intelligence (BI) Suite.

The inspiration
This POC was inspired by Microsoft’s ‘Analytics for Twitter’ PowerPivot in Excel 2010 sheet. Since this is in Excel, it is (sorry) useless in corporate environments and therefore this POC was born.

Custom software:
– Twitter Search API -> SQL#
– Google Maps API
– Xbox Live API
– Text sentiment analysis by BumbleBI (Tone Dictionary)

Refresh rate: every 5 minutes (up to 1 minute is possible)
