We follow many people on Twitter who attended this week’s Social Media Club in Salt Lake City, Utah and, while we didn’t attend ourselves, decided it would be interesting to create a data visualization of all the tweets with the #smcslc hashtag.
The dashboard shows the number of tweets per hour and can be filtered according to several different times. You can click on specific hours or drag to select multiple hours, filtering the bottom two panes. We also show original tweets and retweets over the same period of time.
The second pane shows the various people who tweeted using the #smcslc hashtag. The bar shows their individual tweets and we have sorted the list according to the number of tweets, so top tweeters are at the top. You can hover over a bar segment to see the tweet details, and you can select a user or bar segment to filter the lower pane, which shows the raw tweets.
A couple of things that we could add to a dashboard (though not this one – we don’t want to make it too cluttered) would be top tweets and top retweets. Perhaps we’ll follow up with a later post containing that information.
