A Visualization of Everyone on Twitter Talking About 11/11/11 on 11/11/11 [Video]
Last Friday was November 11, 2011, otherwise known as (Skyrim‘s release date) and 11/11/11. Twitter paid attention on the numerically pretty day and posted the above clip, which shows everyone talking about the date on Twitter. The visualization shows that the right half of the world began talking about it first, because they live in the future and got to experience it before the rest of us who failed to contemporize and are still living in the past. Each “1” in the visualization represents a location at which the date is mentioned, with the scale of the “1” representing the volume of tweets. God, talking about an aesthetically pleasing date is so three days ago.
