Last fall I shared a tutorial for using NodeXL to show participation in Twitter conversations. Then, I created a this map and article showing participation in the Mentoring Summit last February. In May 2016 I created another map and article, showing participation in The #onthetable2016 event hosted by The Chicago Community Trust.
Today I'm sharing three maps, which show participation in two important conversations held on June 8, 2016. One was a #promisechat hosted by the America's Promise organization, created following the 1997 President's Summit for America's Future. The second was an #Educationdisparities chat, hosting by the Brookings Institution. These were back to back, one starting at 1pm CST and the other at 2pm CST.
The maps below show participation in each event, then show participation in both events. This shows the crossover of people who participated in both, such as myself.

There's much that event organizers can do using these maps, to understand who they are reaching, and to plan future events that recruit more who need to be involved in these conversations.
There's also much that anyone using Twitter can do to learn who the major influencers in each conversation are, and to reach out and begin to build a relationship by following them.
I want to thank Marc Smith and NodeXL for creating these maps for me at no cost.
