Bangkok flooding and tweeting

As we have noted before that you can tell the extent of destruction of a natural disaster by looking at its impact on twitter.  Japan's tsunami left a massive region of destruction ending tweeting on the east coast of much of the nation.  So the impact of recent floods in Bangkok have given us a test case.

 This shows the concentration of tweets in Bangkok on the October 19, before the worst of the flooding hit Bangkok.

Here is the 23rd of October

And here was the 24th of October early afternoon
