Twitter Followers Network Map

by Robert Ruggiero, @blobot

The data for this network map was obtained via Twitter.

We used arandom sample of 100 followers from each of the three networks: CING, Northern Digitals, Social Media Cafe. The overwhelming majority choose to list a location on their Twitter profiles. This informationwas extracted and visualised on the map. Locations within the UK were left as indicated on the follower’s profiles, in a few international cases, we chose to group them by country.

Identity is a contentious issue, even on the internet, hence the overlapping of locations (England and the UK, or Lancashire and North England).
