This contexutal analysis shows the reaction to be centred around the olympic games. Further analysis of the olympics topic in context shows words ‘ringfencing, positive, influential’ and ‘axe, fall, furious’ demonstrating a polorisation of opinion on how the olympics could be affected.

The arts was topical in close context to budget, further context analysis reveals discussions about museums, festivals, film, and theatres with negative words connected such as ‘fears, hit, falls, trim, pinch, mean’. A wholly more negative view of being affected compared to the olympics. The arts subject was the one most retweeted.

Suprisingly although the alert web community is prevalent on twitter, there was very few tweets about the U.K semantic web cuts.
