24h London Twitter Traffic

Following on from yesterday’s blog post on public transport in the UK, here comes an animation of the Twitter traffic in London during 24 hours.

Tweets are shown as red circles, and re-tweets as yellow points moving in the direction of information, i.e. from the original tweets towards the location of the re-tweets.

Apparently, the parallel Twitter universe wake up much later than the real world of commuters.

Thanks to Steven Gray and urbanTick for providing the data!
