Tweet-o-Meter CASA, UCL
Showing tweets per minute
New York

Is it true that, "New York is the city that never sleeps!"? Do Londoners send more Tweets than New Yorkians'? Is Oslo a bigger Tweeter than Munich? Is Tokyo as much into Tweets as Barcelona? Has San Francisco calmed down after all that talk about the iPad? Tweet-o-Meter Knows!

The Tweet-o-Meter measures the amount of tweets (measured in Tweets per Minute or TPM) received from various locations around the world. The guages are updated every second giving you a live view of the TPM's in each location.

Tweet-o-Meter is designed to mine data for later analysis relating to furthering our understanding of social and temporal dynamics for e-Social Science within the Twitter demographic. It is under development at CASA, University College London as part of a wider survey tool as part of the NeISS project in association with UrbanTick and Digital Urban, coded by Steven Gray.
