Twitter Language Maps


James Cheshire (@spatialanalysis), of the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis in London, has teamed up with researcher and modeller Ed Manley (@EdThink) and Trendsmap’s John Barratt (@johnbarratt) to create yet another language map, following the success of the original London Twitter Language Map in October last year. What Cheshire and co. have done this time is take the multitude of languages spoken on Twitter in New York and turn them yet again into a colorful language map that is not only easy to read but also shows, with a simple glance, how fanstastically diverse a metropolis can be in the U.S. (or England).
