My newest creation into crowd sourcing this week has launched, the Tweet-o-Meter! Tweet-o-Meter shows twitter traffic from different cities around the world and allows you to see which city tweets the most. We are mining the data for later analysis to and are currently in the process of mapping the data. It’s all very exciting.
On a technical note, Tweet-o-Meter relies heavily on jQuery and the GeoLocation Twitter API to track the different cities, and is running on 3 Dual Core iMac’s to process the data distributively, but more about that in a future blog post.
For now sit back and enjoy the Tweet-o-Meter
