Microblog network, with its structural complexity and variety, prevents trivial network visual analytical tools from providing effective insight into the diffusion process of information and the effect of human participation on it. Therefore, we propose an advanced system to help users identify the key players and their various roles in the propagation of microblogs and thus analyze them based on the relations of relevant entities in between, by connecting multiple steps of filtering.
