Locals & Tourists

With the power of MapBox and Twitter data from Gnip, data artist Eric Fischer worked with the Gnip team to create a fully-browsable worldwide map of local allegiances. Blue points on the map are Tweets posted by “Locals”: people who have tweeted in a city dated over a range of a month or more.

Red points are Tweets posted by “Tourists”: people who seem to be Locals in a different city and who tweeted in this city for less than a month.
