Interactive map shows areas where it is used geolocation in Twitter

Today, shared on its official blog the work of Nicolas Belmonte, an employee of the company decided to build interactive using location information that some people add to their tweet, but no function that is used by all users, is sufficient to perform this kind of projects.

The idea is to discern the areas where it is most tweets, what appears on the interactive represented by the height of land that rises as more traffic is logged. The map display can rotate and zoom in using the mouse and can be seen in detail the busiest areas in the social network.

At the moment only three locations can be viewed on the map: New York, San Francisco and Istanbul, so if you’re interested in seeing the use of geolocation in detail to these areas, you can visit the official site Twitter where he has mounted the project .
