Twitter + MIT = Understand social Impact of Tweets!

Here is the latest - Twitter just gave $10M to the Media Lab to analyze every tweet and study it's social impact through visualizations. Very cool!


  1. Data is just data before being analyzed. They have no intrinsic difference from a simple signal or code. MIT will be a critical intermediary to help Twitter to transform these data into information or even knowledge. However there are also some concerns about privacy problem in this situation.

  2. A good piece of information.. This is the best way to convey one liner messages.
