Tweeting in Oakland

The above map using our Clima tracking tool shows a the cluster of tweeting at the Occupy camp, with more tweets there than the rest of the city.  This kind of concentration of tweets at night shows the intensity of the movement which is preparing for a possible police raid.  You can track the tweeting with this tool. Just type in the city you which to watch.  You can also get a density reading with our tool below:

In a pattern we have seen again and again tweeting surges in response to police trying to clear an area.  We are seeing over 90 out of 100 on our score at 4:00 am Oakland time, very high.
