Chicano Chatter On Twitter

Check out the latest chatter from people using the word ‘Chicano’ on twitter.

In an effort to highlight more content, we developed a few database queries to routinely retrieve uncontroversial tweets. Some of these contain frivolous references or insightful comments. Unfortunately, in many social media platforms, some of the least informed content often gets more elevated in the general public’s conscience. This page is an effort to add visibility to the reactions, concerns and ideas of the less prominent (“unliked”, less indexed) voices on Twitter, which are equally valid.

In this page, you can monitor content that contains the keyword ‘Chicano’ without any explicit content. For that more flagrant content, please visit this link. This relatively neutral content should be easy enough to follow along. I sort this list of tweets programmatically; using the Twitter Search API, I am able to amass a daily sampling of tweets on the concepts most.

At any rate, these pages allow one to observe what topics are on the mind of the more vocal members of the community. Feel free to report to twitter any objectionable content. The tweets are shown in their entirety and the views expressed their do not express my own or those of my employer.

The content is refreshed roughly every 24 hours. You will either get today’s results or the day before.

Leveraging NVIDIA Downloads

An issue during the installation of TensorFlow in the Anaconda Python environment is an error message citing the lack of a DLL file. Logically, you will also receive the same error for invoking any Spacy language models, which need TensorFlow installed properly.

Thus, running the code below will invoke an error message without the proper dependencies installed:

import spacy
import spacy.attrs
nlp = spacy.load('es_core_news_sm')

The error message below will appear if the NVIDIA GPU Developer kit is not installed:

"W tensorflow/stream_executor/platform/default/] Could not load dynamic library 'cudart64_110.dll'; dlerror: cudart64_110.dll not found"
"I tensorflow/stream_executor/cuda/] Ignore above cudart dlerror if you do not have a GPU set up on your machine."

The issue is the lack of a GPU developer kit from NVIDIA.
