Best Visualizations of Twitter - Good for your Profile

.



I just created a new Twitter account, and it got me to thinking about all the data visualization I've seen for Twitter tweets. I felt like I'd seen a lot, and it turns out there are quite a few. Here they are grouped into four categories - network diagrams, maps, analytics, and abstract.

Network Diagrams

Twitter is a social network with friends (and strangers) linking up with each other and sharing tweets aplenty. These network diagrams attempt to show the relationships that exist among users.

Twitter Social Network Analysis


The ebiquity group did some cluster analysis and managed to group tweets by topic.


Twitter Vrienden


Twitter in Red

I'm not completely sure how to read this one. I looks like it starts from a single user and then shoots out into the network.

Maps

When you create a Twitter account, you can enter where you are located, so in my case, I put New York. Because Tweets often have location attached to them, maps naturally lend themselves to tweet visualization.
TwiterVision


Yeah, it's a Google Maps mashup, but a bit better than what you're used to seeing.


TwitterVision3d


It's TwitterVision taken to the next dimension.

TwitterMeter


Twitter Fountain



Twitter Blocks


Created by the folks at Stamen. I posted about Blocks when it came out.

A lot, huh? All of these were made possible by the Twitter API that allows developers to access Twitter data for free. Did I miss any other Twitter visualizations? Please leave the link in the comments below.
Follow Me On Twitter

So now that you know what Twitter looks like, you can head on over and "follow" me; or if you don't have an account yet, you can create one in a few seconds.
