When Your Twitter Friend Turns Out To Be The Boston Bomber

We live in a networked age, where you can be found not only through the data trails that you leave behind, but also based on the patterns around your network – who you’re connected to. A lot can be inferred about someone just by looking at their friends and how they’re interconnected on social networks. But what happens when one of your Twitter connections happens to be one of the alleged Boston Marathon bombers?

The evolution of discussion around the Boston Marathon events

When the Esri DC Dev Center team first found out about the reported explosions at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, we immediately tuned into Twitter to capture live discussions so that we could understand the series of events. With over 440,000 tweets captured in under 24 hours, one can imagine the difficulty in trying to synthesize an understanding of how events occurred over that time period.

We grabbed some 50,000 geotagged photos from Flickr, analyzed the pixel colors of each photo, then mapped a grid of the most frequent color hues.
