Neat visualization of World-Cup-related tweets

by Eszter Hargittai on June 13, 2010

I don’t think I’ve seen this on CT yet: the Guardian’s replay of Twitter posts during various World Cup games. Pick a game by clicking on one of the colorful dots – as opposed to the gray ones that signal games not yet played – and not only see the changing relative popularity of related tweet themes, but also see when things happened during the game. (In addition to these showing up on the side next to players’ names as time goes by, you can also see the entire game time line below the figure and move to any specific point by dragging the blue arrow.) Very cool. (Tx: Gilad)

Very cool, indeed. While I’ve been excited about being able to catch important World Cup updates at work via Twitter, I have found that the general platform is too chaotic. This link is a GREAT find! I have all the information I need without having to look at my Twitter feed every 30 seconds.
