Tweeting map at Occupy shutdown of Long Beach Port

Above is a mapping of tweets coming from the port in Long Beach California.  A semantic drill down slows a large amount of tweeting about the occupy movement in the area.

The above map shows the location of heavy tweeting in Long Beach port, with the map below showing the features.

Location of tweets on South Harbor Scenic Drive shows the protests are occupying the street, as confirmed by police.

We are following the tweet #12D
