Interactive World Map Shows Twitter Action In Light
Breathtaking visualization charts tweets in illuminated map form.
Designer Frank Ernewein has set the Twitterverse alight with an animated map that turns Twitter usage from a set of data to an easily digestible image. Ernewein, who titled his creation ‘Tweetping,’ presents a huge amount of valuable stats in an easy to see, uncluttered format, following on a trend of visual representation pioneered by campaign managers and 3D cartographers.
Ernewein’s project is constantly flickering–it captures activity as it occurs, without ‘switching off,’ to reflect (and capture) how tweeting rarely grinds to a halt.
