We offer high enough resolution images to see the details. 1. Figure 1 ![img](images/evolution.png) Illustration of how the strength of actors' ties (or links) varies as a function of time and topic overlap. Thread 1 corresponds to actor-topic dynamic (\ref{eq:1a}) where $$B$$'s late post after $$A$$'s \nth{1} publication does not correlate strongly enough to create the link from $$A$$ to $$B$$. But $$A$$'s \nth{2} post is timely enough, although not exactly on the same topic as $$B$$'s message, to create the tie $$A \dashrightarrow B$$ drawn as a dashed arrow. In thread 2, in addition to the tie $$B \dashrightarrow A$$, we have a topic overlap and time proximity between $$C$$ and $$A$$. This makes a the strong tie $$A \to C$$.
