Where are the people who follow @audiencescapes?


Usual question for many organisations – we’ve got x number of followers, but who are they and where are they?

We asked a similar question for our colleagues @Audiencescapes.

We exported the follower data from the Twitter API. The image is created using a Google Fusion Table to derive and display the location. This is a stated location, rather than geotag. Both have their merits, but we’ve opted for stated location – where users consciously think of being located. In this instance we thought this was more meaningful than where a user was standing at the moment we gathered the data.

We’ve also included in the image data about the users – click on one of the dots to find username, followers, tweets, image and URL if they have made any of these publicly available.

It’s a little crude, but quite a useful start point when thinking about Twitter followers.

Have a look round…

 

From those users with public profile data, we created a wordle just to get a sense of the way people describe themselves.

There’s plenty more to be done, hope to have an in-depth look at the options at some point in the future.
