  • EBACE 2011 -- From The Clouds
    Posted by Benet Wilson 2:23 PM on May 20, 2011

    One of my many hobbies is a fascination with typography and visualization of data.  I'm also a big fan of finding ways to manipulate and show Twitter data in different ways.

    As such, there are some really cool tools out there that can show
    your Twitter feeds and hashtags using clouds.  So I thought it would be fun to show my @AvWeekBenet tags from EBACE 2011, along with the most tweeted tags from the show. 

    The first tool I used was My Tweet Cloud.  You type in your Twitter handle and it shows your top hashtags.  See mine, below.

    To create my word cloud, first I did a search of #EBACE11 at Twitter.com.  At the bottom right of the page, I snagged the RSS feed for this search. Then I went to Wordle, clicked on CREATE, dropped in the URL for the RSS feed and created the cloud, below.  I like Wordle because it gives you 20 different views of your word cloud.  Enjoy!
