Abstract
The increasing relevance of online social networks, such as Twitter, together with the possibility of collecting the data from this platform represents an opportunity to analyze the effect that autonomous communities and nationalism movements have on the Spanish politics. In order to do so, we have first built datasets from Twitter messages, concerning three Spanish electoral processes. Then we built networks of users, linked according to who retransmits whose messages, and classified by their most written language. We found that the Spanish linguistic diversity is well reflected on Twitter. In fact, users tend to retweet messages written mainly in their own language. The catalonian elections were the most polarizing of all.
