Soda vs. Pop with Twitter

Soda vs. Pop with Twitter | Open Access Publishing |
One of the great things about Twitter is that it’s a global conversation anyone can join anytime. Eavesdropping on the world, what what!


While many educators have been using to show the linguistic regions in the United States, this is a similar map, with the added social media component.  To map out these regions, the cartographer used the word choice on geo-tagged tweets as the data source.  For another twitter, map, the following link shows which regions are most actively engaged on Twitter:

What do these regions show us?  What types of regions are these?

This is a really cool use of twitter! I use the term soda, which most of the northeast uses as well.

Twitter is something that is becoming widely used, and is something I usually check everyday. I never really thought of twitter beyond advertising and communicating. It is amazing the kind of data that can be extracted from peoples tweets. In the soda vs. pop argument I would say soda which makes sense since the data shows that people in the Northeast refer to it as soda. Twitter is so current that you can actually get some current and accurate data just from reading the hash tags in peoples tweets. It's amazing that such information can be extracted from all around the world.

The evolution of the web

The evolution of the web | Open Access Publishing |
Interactive infographic about the evolution of browsers and the web.


Google launches this year's version of the Evolution of the Web with Hyperakt and Vizzuality.


Last year, Vizzuality, Hyperakt, and members of the Google Chrome team worked on a visualization of web technologies and browsers. Since it was warmly received by the community, we decided to make a new version, using some of the latest web technologies to provide a fresh and distinctive experience.


In addition to updating the visualization with new browser versions and web technologies, we built a secondary visualization to show the growth of internet users and internet traffic worldwide.
