Billions of Geotagged Tweets Visualized
Ever wonder what it would look like to plot every single geotagged tweet since 2009 on a map? Twitter has done just that.
Twitter posted these maps of Europe, New York City, and more on its blog Friday. They use billions of geotagged tweets: Every dot represents a tweet, with the brighter colours showing a higher concentration of tweets. It’s pretty amazing how the mapped-out tweets clearly match with population centres, motorways and the like — though perhaps that’s obvious.
