Idle No More two-month analysis coming tomorrow

Tomorrow arguably marks the beginning of the third month of the #IdleNoMore movement — that is, the online component of the Idle No More movement. It’s fair to warn you I will be publishing a number of posts, each looking at a particular aspect of the online movement. It’s looking like there will be about five unique posts.

The analysis covers November 25 through January 19. I had to pick a cutoff date that allowed me to review data and generate graphs/charts. I’m saying this only because I expect with today’s expected announcement that Chief Theresa Spence will end her liquid diet/hunger strike, there is likely to be an increase in mentions of #IdleNoMore which won’t be covered in tomorrow’s analysis.

For those who aren’t interested, please accept my apologies for the flood of information.
