By: Jeff Clark Date: Tue, 15 Jul 2008 I just posted a new application in my projects section called Twitter StreamGraphs. It is an interactive tool to let you create StreamGraphs from the latest tweets containing a given word or from a particular user.

A few examples are shown below. The application shows a StreamGraph for the latest 200 tweets which contain the search word. The default search word is 'interesting' but a new one can be typed into the text box at the top of the application. The StreamGraph shows the usage over time for the words most highly associated with the search word. Credits go to Lee Byron for the visual ideas behind the StreamGraph (although I'm using a simpler symmetrical form), to Processing for the development tools, to Martin Porter for the Porter Stemming Algorithm, to Vaga for the two small icons, and to Summize for building a great API into the Twitter data.'s Top Trending Links - Web Trend Map.

As our teams debated the finer points of Big Data, Fast Data, and machine learning technologies, it became clear to us that we could find no better colleagues than the guys at OneRiot.

As a part of Walmart, we're continuing to work with the intensity of a technology startup. Today I’m pumped to share the news that, within 30 days of that first meeting, we have closed a transaction to acquire the key assets of OneRiot. The technology team at OneRiot will move to Silicon Valley and become part of @WalmartLabs in September. As I have written before, here at @WalmartLabs we’re doing some amazingly interesting and impactful work at the intersection of social, mobile, and retail. TweetGrid - by jazzychad. What The Trend?
