Visualization: @replies (Archive)

Newer Older

On Twitter, we saw a 500% increase in Tweets from Japan as people reached out to friends, family and loved ones in the moments after the March 2011 earthquake. This video shows the volume of @replies traveling into and out of Japan in a one-hour period just before and then after the earthquake. Replies directed to users in Japan are shown in pink; messages directed at others from Japan are shown in yellow.

miguelrios, minnixs, diegopetrucci, and 104 other people added this video to their favorites.

    This brought tears to my eyes...tears of joy and tears of sadness. Ecstatic over the power of the Internet and the human need to connect with loved ones, but saddened for the thousands affected.
