London Twitter Cloud Updated Movie

By March 17, 2010 No Comments

An update movie on our data collection via Twitter in association with urbantick. The data covers a weekend period from Friday evening to Monday morning containing 380,000 individual tweets. Within these 60,000 were geo-referenced, tweeted by 5,500 individual users.

The movie clip uses Google Earth to visualise the data:

Note the ‘tweets’ at Heathrow and how you can almost pick out London’s shape via the twitter cloud alone. The original movie can be found here.
