Realtime Visualization of Germany and Argentina supporters using Twitter data.

Video of the visualization during the Finals

Having just finished my undergrad, I was home during my summer break. I couldn’t ask for a better time for the world cup to start. I was excited and curious, which side had more supporters? i made FIFA stream to find the answer
My team won :P

Concept Idea

I used Twitter's streaming API to collect and analyze tweets. Parsed the ones containing Germany or Argentina. And I plotted them using D3 based on their geo location on a map.
