Tweet-tasticCheck out this map tracking over six billion tweets which have been sent out into the world.

Created by Mapbox’s Eric Fischer, the interactive display highlights the 6,341,973,478 geotagged tweets from the last three and a half years, and the shows where Twitter use is most concentrated in the world.

The highly detailed map can be zoomed out to encompass the entire globe or zoom right in to see where Tweets were sent from in your street.

Using open-source tools to manipulate the data, Fischer said only about nine per cent of the tweets collected are visible on the map to avoid duplicating locations.
