Unless you’ve been safely hidden under a rock for the past year or so, you may be aware of Twitter’s growing status. However, taking a peek at Twittervision, a website that displays real-time Twitter tweets across a geographic map of the world, visually showcases the global phenomenon that Twitter has become. One of the more revealing aspects of Twittervision is the sheer frequency of tweets being posted, as well as a 3-D option that allows users to view the geographic visualization of Twitter posts on a real-time, spherical satellite image of the globe. Twittervision also offers sociological insight into our modern world as well: Most of the posts visualized on Twittervision’s map originate from the Northern Hemisphere, particularly from the United States and Western Europe, while posts from less developed areas of the global South seem rare. As Twitter gains more and more momentum, Twittervision is an excellent (and strangely captivating) way of keeping track of the social platform’s international popularity.
