We made this to track the rise and fall of memes with web scraping and data visualization! Twitter is a fairly quick and adaptive medium for simple, text-based memes, such as the short-lived sheriff meme and the eternal "me, an intellectual:" format. We wanted a quick and simple way to chart the life cycle of such memes. and by scraping tweets and visualizing them, we can gain a good sense of the most popular instances of a meme as well as its lifespan.
We scraped Twitter tweets and organized data using Python and Bokeh to build visualization static htmls.
