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?

This is how jittery financial markets are, in one chart

The official Twitter account of the Associated Press was hacked, the AP reported, and the hacker tweeted out that there had been a White House explosion.

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.

unionmetrics:

This Week in Social Analytics on Tumblr | From ComScore’s 2013 U.S. Digital Future in Focus:

“Three social networks in particular – Tumblr, Pinterest and Instagram – each gained more than 10 million visitors over the course of the year in part by catering to a desire for more visually appealing content. comScore has called this phenomenon “the rise of the visual web.” Of the three, Tumblr had the largest audience at 30.8 million visitors (up 64 percent from the prior year), while Pinterest (up 284 percent to 28.9 million visitors) and Instagram (up 284 percent to 27.4 million visitors) both shared the same outsized growth rate.” 

The first graph above shows the shares for time spent on each site, with Tumblr coming in second behind Facebook, while the second shows the total unique visitor trend with Tumblr trending above both Pinterest and Instagram.

The Sandy effect: how Manhattan looks on Foursquare after a hurricane

Popular check-in app Foursquare offers great data, showing the places people visit at any given time of day. The data tells a compelling story, especially for events like Hurricane Sandy.
Take a look at a visualization of check-ins in Manhattan on the Saturday prior to the storm and on Wednesday Oct. 31, days after Sandy hit. This really drives home how Sandy created two towns within Manhattan.

Joern Roeder & Jonathan Pirnay - Facebook Faces (2011)

This is an installation of over 100,000 Facebook profile pictures collected to form a wallpaper, a project dealing with “the issue of data accessibility on the Internet, a topic that is gaining more and more importance and actuality, especially in our times of privacy protection and social networks.

On the one hand internet giants like Google are coming under criticism for unsolicitedly collecting any information accessible; on the other hand it is surprising how many intimacies we reveal voluntarily, especially in social networks like Facebook. 

An unimaginable flood of images with self-projection as its only purpose.”

During the Olympics, Studio NAND, Moritz Stefaner, and Drew Hemment tracked Twitter sentiment with Emoto. This interactive installation and data sculpture is the last leg of the project.

Character social networks in movies

We’ve seen a lot of network charts for Twitter, Facebook, and real people. Screw that. I want to see social networks for movie characters. That’s where Movie Galaxies comes in.
