Online social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook encourage people to share their status in real time. Although these self-reported messages are unstructured and ‘noisy’, they are an extremely direct window into the lives of millions of users. Twitter as online word of mouth can provide opinions about products, services, or systems. We implemented “Tweetsters”, a program that allows users to explore this information. Tweetsters is a multi-view interactive visualization displaying trends over time, localization of specific keywords, and allows for comparison between keywords.
