Visualization: 2010 World Cup Timeline (Archive)

    Newer Older

    This Infographic charts fans’ use of Twitter hashflags (like #esp or #usa) in their Tweets during the 2010 World Cup, with a background showing Tweets-per-second (TPS) over the same period (June 11-July 11, 2010).

    When you look at this graphic, think of it like a soundwave -- the louder and more consistent the “noise,” the bigger the impact in all directions. Countries’ flags represent use of their hashflag. The size of the flag “waves” fluctuate with the frequency & consistency of tweets containing each country’s hashflag.

      Your graphic is confusing because all 32 nations competing had either their team or players from their team that were Trending Topics. This graph only focuses on a small portion of the teams playing in the World Cup. I'm not sure why you chose this route.

      There was not enough space to add the 32 teams as a stream. The choice was based in showing the 4 semifinalists and the other 3 countries which tweeted the most.

      nice of people just to criticise others' work when they don't even have any photos!
