This is pretty interesting and neat data mining. A couple of comments for improving the presentation of your results:


1) Label the axes on your plots. After a bit of time, we can figure out that the row headers are senders and column headers are receivers, but this should be explicit.


2) Explicitly say what red and green indicates. I had to spend a few seconds to realize that red means “less than expected” and green meants “greater than expected”. Again, be explicit.


3) Speaking of colorblindness, choose colors other than red and green. Red-green colorblindness is the most common. Try a different gradient with un-noteable cells as white.


4) Actual measures for statistical significance would be helpful (p-values, correlation coefficients, etc.).


This is all pretty fascinating and I appreciate your work. A few minor changes would make this much more professional and remarkable.
