Physical Tweet-O-Meter Wall Tracks Real-Time Tweeting Activity of Major Cities

Those of you interested in the anthropological patterns of social networking might want to plan a trip to British Library’s Growing Knowledge exhibition, where CASA’s (Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis) Tweet-O-Meter currently calls its home. The Tweet-O-Meeter is a real-time analog monitoring system that tracks the current Twitter activity of 9 major cities.

The machine was developed to help better understand “social dynamics among Twitter users around the world.” But we imagine the result is a sort of timezone effect, where you could roughly estimate the time of any given city just by monitoring the Twitter usage.

  1. Oddly enough, the timezone effect is less apparent than one would expect. Lots of surprising peaks and troughs.
