It has been widely commented on social media's influence on the 2016 U.S. election. It is now commonplace for political candidates to use social media to reach out to the electorate.

The amount of content already being produced on social media is enormous. Never in human history have such data sets been available for analysis, and they have the potential to transform how we live.
