Discussion Graph Tool (DGT) simplifies social media analysis by making it easy to extract high-level features and co-occurrence relationships from raw data. With just 3-4 simple lines of script, you can load your social media data, extract complex features such as mood, gender and location, and generate a graph among arbitrary features. Throughout, DGT automates best-practices, such as tracking the context of relationships.

Installation Note: Unblock the zip file before unzipping binaries.
When you download the DGT zipfile and unzip the contents, you may notice that the EXEs and Files are blocked from running or being used. If this happens, you will see an error "Unhandled Exception: System.IO.FileLoadException: Could not load file or assembly" Blocking the execution of files downloaded from the Internet is a security feature of some web browsers.
To avoid this, once you have downloaded the zip file, please click Unblock in the properties dialog box for the zip file (see below). Then, continue unzipping the contents as instructed in the installation steps.
