Visualising the Temporal Dynamics of Power Laws in Large Data Sets

Developing a visualisation to represent how the public engages with news stories on Twitter over time. The visualisation (LOOM) was tested in three user studies with 180 people to identify the visual and preprocessing properties that facilitate more accurate reading of the data. Finally, an expert user study was carried out with 10 journalists (experts in news) to establish LOOM's use and applicability in the newsroom.
