Mapping Languages Using Twitter
Last week I ran across this map by Eric Fischer. I thought it was a very interesting way to map languages using a technology that is so pervasive. Here is a map where the language of the tweets tell the story of culture. Countries with their own single language are distinguishable (Portugal) while countries with multiple languages blend in with their surrounding countries (Belgium and Switzerland).
Follow the link a take a look at the detailed map.
