Good Morning! It is a simple, friendly greeting repeated everyday by billions of people around the world. It’s a conventional expression that can convey both greetings or a farewell. Thanks to its brevity and universal acceptance – we all see and share good morning tweets on a fairly regular basis. But, we had no idea just how many tweeple were sending early morning greetings until we saw this unique Twitter Visualization.
The video shows about 11,000 tweets collected over a 24 hour period between August 20th and 21st. The tweets were harvested to find people saying ‘good morning’ in English as well as several other languages.
The tweets appear as color-coded blocks. Green tweets are early in the morning, orange tweets came around 9am, and red tweets came a bit later in the morning. Black tweets are ‘out-of-time’ as they were sent at times that aren’t actually in the morning at the specific location. Check it out.
Watching it makes us want to go out and make it a great day! If you are interesting in learning more about how this visualization was created check out the blog of Jer Thorp, the creator of this visualization. He walks you thought the process of how the visualization was first conceived and the steps and challenges in producing it. Thanks Jer for sharing it with us.
Have a great good morning! Be well and Happy Tweeting.
