Billions of Geotagged Tweets Visualized in Twitter's Amazing Maps

Billions of Geotagged Tweets Visualized in Twitter's Amazing Maps | Social Media Butterflies |

Ever wonder what it would look like to plot every single geotagged tweet since 2009 on a map? Twitter has done just that.


Twitter posted these maps of Europe, New York City, Tokyo and Istanbul on its blog Friday. They use billions of geotagged tweets: Every dot represents a tweet, with the brighter colors showing a higher concentration of tweets. It's pretty amazing how the mapped-out tweets clearly match with population centers, highways and the like — though perhaps that's obvious.

Some smart guy said Twitter is not a Technology • It's a Conversation and will ocurr with or without you and knowing where the conversation is happening can be very useful to online marketers who use Twitter

Unit 1 Nature and Perspectives of Geography.                                 This is a map of all of the geotagged twitter posts from 2009 to now in the United States. Its shows population distribution and points of interest that people like to travel to. It shows dense population centers and highways. You can see the roads in the map because of space in the map not covered. The brighter colors are in higher population and more popular travel destinations. This is a map of many types.                                                                                                          This map is a part of unit 1 because it is a map of a basic geographic concept. This map is a functional map of sorts because it shows points of travel that people go to, but it is not varied by distance so it is not a precise version. This map is a definite example of a thematic map because it shows the story of the travel destinations of five years of their lives.

10 Types of “Tweets” That Encourage REAL Connection

10 Types of “Tweets” That Encourage REAL Connection | Social Media Butterflies |

 Great post by Kim Garst, Twitter can be a very powerful tool to build your business if you use it wisely.




The purpose of Twitter and all social media, is not to make money, but to brand YOU and your business and build relationships with potential and existing customers. The money will follow if you put your customers FIRST.


**Mix your "business" talk with "life" talk




"Twitter challenges personal brands to reach out to their audience differently than they would in traditional marketing and/or social media platforms."


Here are some highlights that caught my attention:


**The resource sharing tweet - Find a great article or a resource that you know your target audience could benefit from


**The quotable tweet - This one speaks for itself


**Tip of the Day Tweet - great way to provide relevant content to your target audience by providing them a valuable piece of info that they can use either personally or profesionally. This also builds vlaue for you as an expert within your niche.
