Free Twitter Data Analytics Book

From the Data Mining and Machine Learning Lab at Arizona State University comes a free book, Twitter Data Analytics.

This book covers not only the Twitter API, but then goes into how to best store tweets, how to analyze tweets, and how to visualize Twitter activity. It's a full compendium of Twitter analytics, written by some pretty sharp guys getting cash from the US Government for their work with Twitter.

There's a lot of information bouncing around the web about Twitter analytics, but I've never seen the whole topic covered, beginning to end, in one place. Let alone in a format this readable. If you have a bit of programming experience, you know enough to do everything in this book. And I'm fairly certain all the tools they use are free.

The version currently available is a Preprint, and they have a publisher, so this might not be free forever.
