Hi everyone in today’s video we’re going to be taking a look at the One Million Tweet Map. It maps the last geolocalized tweets delivered by the twitter stream API.The Map data is updated in real-time – YES – IN REAL-TIME – and it keeps “only” the last one million tweets on a global scale. Each second, about fifty new tweets are added (and the fifty oldest tweets are removed to keep the same number of points on the map). Why not higher amounts? They are limited by the Twitter stream but they could do much higher.
To put it matter-of-factly – this map deals with big data effortlessly.
