You Snooze You Loose: Comparing the Roles of High Activity and Connectivity in Information Dissemination Over Online Social Networks

We compare these transmitter characteristics with respect to information diffusion in online networks across three studies (experiment, agent-based simulation, empirical analysis of Twitter data).
