This cool visualization by André Panisson shows how the news of the Egyptian Revolution in Egypt spread on Twitter in real time. Fast CoDesign explains that each dot corresponds to a user tweeting with the hashtag #jan25, probably with the exception of Kenneth Cole. A line is drawn between two dots every time it gets retweeted until eventually, it turns into a full blown network of protesters all around the globe. Oops, spoiler alert? Well, just watch it to appreciate.
