Blogless: Blog of Design Less Better.

Twitter Visualizations

Tools for visualizing Twitter from Jeff Clark.

I recently came across Jeff Clark’s portfolio, which features a ton of solid data visualization tools and projects, including a couple of nice applications for Twitter.

Twitter Venn (created using Processing and Twitter Search) takes a set of terms and creates a Venn Diagram showing the rate of tweets containing the each of search terms and combination of the search terms. Twitter Venn also shows a tag cloud for each regions with other common words. Look at the Twitter Venn for design, less, better:

Twitter Venn: design less better

Ok, I’ll take responsibility for the lack of the combo “design + less + better.” Paul, whose tweets are rare and often cryptic, isn’t helping a lot either. We’ll work on that.

Anyway, I also like Twitter Spectrum, which two search terms and shows words that are most commonly associated with the terms in tweets.

Very cool, as are all the posts I’ve found here in my first visit… I’ve followed @counternotions for over a year and never thought to visit until seeing @nathanbowers list it, now I don’t want to unplug ~

Thanks for the fun links and smart brevity, much appreciated.
