So this time a week ago, as I sat down to watch two teams I had little interest in (thanks Packers and subsequently Vikings for not livening up the day) fight for the NFL championship, I also decided to track what activity Twitter manifested for the game. The results, shown below in my first attempt at an infographic, are interesting, though after examination, I doubt they are complete. My sample was over 300,000 messages from the hours before till after the game, but I think due to the speed at which they were sent, I didn't get everyone. I still thought the data was interesting enough to be represented below, but keep in mind this is more of a thorough global sample than an exhaustive collection.
Comments and Suggestions about the methodology, the infographic design and the results are welcome.
