Big data at your Fingertips: Global Twitter Activity in Realtime

Twitter as the global heartbeat of our planet is a concept that has been hovering around the web for some time now. This idea got more real with Tweetping which visualizes Twitter activity in real time, on a global scale.

So we can watch Europe go to sleep and people wake up in some other parts of the world. Tweetping shows Twitter’s digital movements through the physical world with explosions of light which represents activity of course. This not just shows that there are many tweets send throughout the day, it shows patterns and this is very interesting. Play around with the big data at your fingertips provided by the Twitter API.
