Information Presentation: 'A World of Tweets'

Real-time visualization of geolocated tweets around the world

A World of Tweets is all about playing with geography and bits of information. Simply put, A World of Tweets shows you where people are tweeting at from the past hour. The more tweets there are from a specific region, the "hotter" or redder it becomes.

This continuous collection of Twitter statuses also allows for the presentation of other interesting visuals as well as statistical and historical data about the tweeting world we live in. Through the activity of Twitter users it is possible to tailor a new map of the world that evolves during the day according to the timezones and the spreading of mobile technologies.

A world of tweets started as a personal project one rainy Sunday afternoon and transformed into a side project at frog design, Milan.

Stunning results
