To represent the social dynamics of these upvotes, I drew an edge from user A to user B if user A transmitted the post to user B through an upvote. (Specifically, I drew an edge from Alice to Bob if Bob follows Alice and Bob's upvote appeared within five days of Alice's upvote; this is meant to simulate the idea that Alice was the key intermediary between my post and Bob.)
Also: * Green nodes are users with at least one upvote edge. * Blue nodes are users who follow at least one of the topics the post is categorized under (i.e., users who probably discovered the answer by themselves). * Red nodes are users with no connections and who do not follow any of the post's topics (i.e, users whose path to the post remain mysterious). * Users increase in size when they produce more connections.
