Tweetping is a data visualization tool with real-time twitter feeds from around the world. The dashboard is broken down by continent listing the following global statistics:
-total number of tweets
– number of tweets per country
– last hashtages
-person making last tweet
The project was developed by web designer, Franck Ernweinan, using Nodejs with socket.io, processing.js, and backbone.js. While visually enticing, these graphical representations tell us something about the nature of place, but how can it inform us about a city like Chicago? At this point, it would be useful to have this data exported for analysis, right now its only telling us global tweets happening around the world in real-time.
