Word cloud from Trump and Clinton tweets

As a grad student working primarily on statistical methodology, I regularly experience phases of total disillusionment with math/stats. Recently I realized that when I don’t feel like doing “real” math for prolonged periods of time, I instead can work on data analyses, which are mathematically unsophisticated (and possibly of low mathematical quality), but rather focus on simple techniques and/or visualizations of interesting data.
Somebody at kaggle.com conveniently provides tweet data of this year’s two major presidential candidates. Here, I very briefly visually investigate this dataset.
