Online social networking is a prominent part of today’s culture. There are a wide variety of social networking sites such as Facebook, Myspace, LinkedIn, and Twitter. Social networks are utilized for exchanging information and sharing news amongst the users in the community. By analyzing the connectivity and propagation of information between users, this information can be utilized to allow for the usage of the online community as an effective channel for broadcasting information. Recent studies have shown that social network data can be a useful means of delivering headline news to the public. Our research has focused upon visualizing how tweets from Twitter propagate in geo-temporal space.
