    Oscar Pistorius: day 11 morning session in words

    Posted By Alastair Otter

    We’re into the 11th day of the Oscar Pistorius murder trial and during a particularly long, drawn out pre-lunch session I was messing around with the a large collection of tweets from the morning’s session that I had collected. What to do with almost 10,000 tweets but make a word cloud? So here it is: a quick wordcloud generated from 9,996 tweets over the course of the morning’s session.

    It’s worth mentioning that the wordcloud was created with the excellent Wordle wordcloud generator. The tweets that were used in this were collected automatically using a series of scripts I wrote over the weekend. But more on that later.
