NOAH — Network of a hashtag

Hashtags are used to group posts of a specific topic and stay tuned to several discussions and trends on the internet. What would it look like if we could trace back the origins and follow the distribution of those dialogs? With NOAH we tried to visualize the Network Of A Hashtag relative to its GPS source. We can watch as discussions grow and shrink, recognize how day and night affects the social network and get a feeling of how trends are developing globally using the Twitter API. NOAH was experimentally build using Processing. We are currently working on making a web version of it.
