As obesity and diabetes spread throughout the world, discussions about exercise follow. How do those discussions breakdown? EMC collected and stored tweets containing “#exercise” using the 1000 node Greenplum analytics workbench and a Greenplum Data Computing Appliance. In Tableau Desktop, three large groups of tweets were identified – those mentioning weight, run and health. Over the collection period, a spike in discussions about weight was noticed in the early morning hours.
