In Brief

A machine measures real-time Twitter activity of some of the major cities around the world.

The digital Tweet-o-Meter that we covered a few months back has now taken physical form. Currently residing in the British Library’s Growing Knowledge exhibition, the fully functional, analog Tweet-O-Meter displays real-time tweeting levels in 9 major cities of the world. Designed as huge ammeters, the machine was developed by the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis to understand social dynamics among Twitter users around the world.
