How Does Information Spread Around The Urban Environment? [Video]
24 hours of Twitter's nervous system's activity is mapped over the capital of the UK.
The Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis at University College London have traced a map of Twitter Communication over the course of 24 hours in London. Chief researcher Anders Johansson explains:
“Tweets are shown as red circles, and retweets as yellow points moving in the direction of information – from the original tweets towards the location of the retweets. It’s interesting to see that, aside from a lull around 10am, traffic remains pretty constant throughout the day.”
