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:
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.
