Beautiful, Beautiful Data

Flip over at InfoChimps has put together a massive scrape of twitter.  While trying to figure out how to process it all, I’ve drawn one day’s scrape* (20-Dec-08).  Many thanks to Flip and InfoChimps for the wow work, and doubly so for making publicly available.

twitterIt’s actually a subset of the day; I limited to nodes with more than one friend.  Why the limitation?  We working in at least O(n²) and that was over half of the nodes.  Was it necessary?  No, but it sure make it quicker for something I just wanted to see what it looked like.
