Nicolas Belmonte, “Data Visualization Scientist” at Twitter, has represented the impact of the #Euro2012 hashtag [] during Euro 2012, which is short for the European football tournament (which just finished, btw). The visualization shows day-by-day data aggregated by country in addition to tweets per minute for each match during the tournament.

The visualization is based on the organically shaped StreamGraphs (which have been popularized through Lee Byron’s representation of music listening histories, but can now be noticed in several other projects).

A bit more background information about this project is available here.
