Twitter recently published two incredible data visualization videos showing the links between outgoing and incoming tweets from Japan following the March 11 earthquake. It’s a great example of how digital tools enable us all to communicate world wide.
From twitter’s blog:
“On Twitter, we saw a 500 percent increase in Tweets from Japan as people reached out to friends, family and loved ones in the moments after the earthquake. The video below shows the volume of @replies traveling into and out of Japan in a one-hour period just before and then after the earthquake. Replies directed to users in Japan are shown in pink; messages directed at others from Japan are shown in yellow.”

Twitter is rolling out significant updates to its functionality aiming to continue its popularity.
TechCrunch has an overview of the new features.

There are more social platforms than we can count now. Some with dashboards that are easy to populate but super difficult to navigate. Most collect lots of data, but offer little instruction on what to do with all the details. Some offer tools but without adequate explanation of how to use more than 5% of the functionality.
CoTweet, takes a simpler approach. This could be the PR agency of the future: a dashboard for Twitter sentiment and co-tweeting management. The enterprise system is quite snazzy. Take it out for a free trial.

Twittermood is a project started by a multidisciplinary group of researchers from Northeastern and Harvard that seeks to understand the relationship between mood and geography through complex Tweet analysis.
In analogy to individual neurons firing together to add up to the human consciousness, the billions of tweets have meaningful macro-states that contain information about the whole system rather than the individual tweeters. But we need to do a little data mining to extract meaningful information about these states, to expose our collective states of mind.

This poster summarizes the team’s findings thus far:
As part of the project, they created the following tvideo, documenting a 24-hour mood cycle on Twitter:
A wonderful translation of myriad data points into something insightful.

Twitter is taking a number of steps to enrich the conversation surrounding the World Cup:
[A special] section [of the Twitter site] highlights the key matches coming up as well as top tweets from Twitter accounts affiliated with soccer in some way. Notably, each World Cup matchup will get its own page and live-updating tweet stream about that particular game. For example, here’s South Africa vs. Mexico.
But the coolest thing may be the way you can show your allegiance to one team using a special hashtag. Twitter only hints at this feature, but as you can see, employees are already using it. In this tweet from Twitter’s Vitor Lourenço, he’s clearly rooting for Brazil, for example, and you can see the Brazilian flag in the tweet. How did he do that? Simply use the hashtag “#BRA”.
Explore the World Cup section of Twitter’s site, here.
Interesting to see Twitter providing both:
- New tools for connecting with like-minds (flags in tweets)
- Tweet filters that make conversations more relevant for participants (pages that aggregate game-specific info)

Cool initiative by the Interactive class at the Berghs School of Communication in Sweden.
“Join the worlds first artwork made by Twitter users! The artwork will later be made into a physical piece by Swedish artist Jon Holm. Tweet and get your profile pic inside the frame. More followers = bigger size. Only one person has enough followers to cover the entire frame. Some call him an actor. Others call him a Twitter God Almighty. To us, it doesn’t really matter what you call him as long as you just don’t tell him”.
