After my first experiments with using R for sentiment analysis, I started talking with a friend here at school about my work. Jackson and I decided that we’d like to give it a better shot and really try to get some meaningful results. After a lot of research, we decided to shift languages to Python (even though we both know R). We made this shift because Python has a number of very useful libraries for text processing and sentiment analysis, plus it’s easy to code in. We launched right into tutorials and coding, and this post will be about that process and our results.
