The Flying Tweets Of London

So I’m a sucker for videos showing graphical representations of stuff like… well, like this, an animation of the Twitter traffic in London during a 24 hour period, created by Anders Johansson at University College London’s CASA (Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis), where they do stuff like this. The red dots are tweets, and the yellow lines are retweets (moving towards the original tweet). You can see the action pick up as people wake up and get busier in the evening:

I really can’t explain why this is interesting to me. And mapped tweets are nothing new (Streamdin, for example). But I guess it’s the same as that Wikipedia history animation we had the other week: it’s interesting to see the patterns in which things happen. At least, I think so.

  1. It would be interesting to combine this kind of time lapse with something like We Feel Fine (http://www.wefeelfine.org/) so that you could see how the moods and emotions of the city change in a day.

    We Feel Fine has been out for six years but I still think it’s amazing.
