Trafalgar Square in tweets

Wondering about this after talking the other day with Tom Carden, who called the square one of the great success stories of Space Syntax. It doesn't look anything like their diagram, which shows everyone clustering around the edges of the fountains.

 

It's hard to tell what the actual usage patterns are from photos. Is the east side of the center of it really more popular?

 

The sharp horizontal line across the middle is clearly some sort of artifact rather than a representation of reality.
