Even as Twitter eyes local talent, locals can now eye where the hot spots are for the service’s short, social messages: The company released a map of every geocoded Tweet in the Boston area, including a number of maritime missives and a distressing number of notes from I-95. Let’s hope those were thanks to Siri or back-seat typists.
The photo, posted to Twitter’s Flickr account, is entitled simply “Visualization: Boston.”
“This image uses all of the geo-tagged Tweets since 2009 — billions of them,” the caption states. “Every dot is a Tweet, and the color is the Tweet count.”
