This is a network visualization of the network of tweets and retweets with the hashtag #jan25 at February 11 2011, just before and after the announcement of Mubarak’s resignation. It is based on about an hour of data collection by André Panisson. You can see an explosion of retweets right when the vice-president announces Mubarrak’s resignation. See here for more detail on the data collection and access to the data set.
