Impact of London protest on tweeting pattern
Above graph shows a fairly typical distribution of tweets in London during the day. Below is the map during the November 9th Student Protests. As you can clearly see the demonstrations gave a unique form to tweeting activity by both concentrating people and attention along the protest route, and emptying out regions. Bloomsbury, where students would often be hanging out was left empty as students moved towards the City of London.
