Welcome to Week 12!

Welcome to week 12 of Earth Analytics! This week we will discuss the use of social media data to better understand change as it impacts humans. Specifically we will talk about natural disasters and how Twitter data can be used to better understand these events. We will work together in R to access the Twitter API and analyze tweets using various text mining approaches.
