Visualizing Twitter

Mashable, the blog about social media, has compiled a list of cool Twitter visualizations. Below is a video example of Just Landed, a geo-visualization of tweets containing the words “Just landed in…” As Mashable explains, “It finds the tweets containing the phrase, checks for the location they¹ve landed in, and the location they were sent from, and shows all this on a 3D map of the world.”

Just Landed is the work of Jer Thorp, a Canadian artist and educator. You can read more about Just Landed on Thorp’s site, blprnt.com.
