Netlytic is a community-supported text and social networks analyzer that can automatically summarize and visualize public online conversations on social media sites. It is made for researchers by researchers, no programming/API skills required.
With Netlytic you can:
- capture publicly available posts from social media sites or other sources (Twitter, YouTube, RSS Feed, or text/csv file)
- Discover popular topics
- Find and explore emerging themes of discussions
- Build, visualize and analyze online communication networks using social network analysis
- Map geo-coded social media data
Netlytic offers a user friendly way to explore and visualize publicly available data from several social media platforms. Each data source differs slightly with regards to the request frequency and how many records will be collected by the importer. For tips, importing and visualization instructions check out our tutorials page.
- Twitter requires to link your Twitter account to use this importer. This importer uses the Twitter REST API v1.1 search/tweets endpoint.
- This returns a collection of relevant Tweets matching a specified query.
- Please note that Twitter's search service and, by extension, the Search API is not meant to be an exhaustive source of Tweets. Not all Tweets will be indexed or made available via the search interface.
- Twitter API rate limit allows about 10 active collectors per user.
- Typically tweets older than a week will not be returned.

Subject: Origin of the term "Internet" ?
I would prefer to not have to do it, but each time I try to submit a course paper without it capitalized, I get the paper back marked up by the professors, telling me it is capital I- internet.
We are committed to maintain free access to this service for Tier 1 & 2 accounts.
However, collecting and analyzing millions of data points from social media require a lot of computing power. To make sure that we have enough “juice” to keep Netlytic running smoothly, we rely on a commercial web hosting company to run this tool. If you like Netlytic, please support hosting of this project by upgrading to “Tier 3?.
Below is more information about each Tier.
