Tweets/likes crossover

To continue from Josh Tucker’s discussion . . .

I posted an entry (“Voting patterns of America’s whites, from the masses to the elites”) both here and at the sister blog.

From the Monkey Cage: 51 tweets, 19 likes.

From Statistical Modeling, Causal Inference, and Social Science: 15 tweets, 66 likes.

An odd non-monotonicity. I’m not on twitter or facebook and have no hypotheses here.

    H1a: Twitter is the network of choice for sending out links to academic research.
    H1b: The volume of tweets to a blog post is a function of overall traffic to the blog.

    H2: Readers of GelmanBlog (being social scientists and/or stats geeks) are more likely to have a close network of Facebook friends who either read GelmanBlog or are predisposed to find its content interesting.

    H3: People retweet interesting links from Matthew Yglesias.
