Knowledge is the ultimate output of decisions on a dataset. The revolution of the Internet has made the global distance closer with the touch on the hand held electronic devices. Usage of social media sites have increased in the past decades. One of the most popular social media micro blog is Twitter. Twitter has millions of users in the world. In this paper the analysis of Twitter data is performed through the text contained in hash tags. After Preprocessing clustering algorithms are applied

Visualization techniques are used to portray the results from which inferences like time series and topic flow can be easily made. The observed results show that the hierarchical clustering algorithm performs better than other algorithms.
