Tweets strong in Occupy Nigeria
Map of dense tweeting in Lagos created with the clima.me mapping technology
The map shows an area in Lagos where we are seeing very heavy geo-tweeting right now. A review of the semantic content of these tweets many concern the protests. We can assume that this is a cluster of protesters, many of whom are using twitter. We are also seeing other clusters in other parts of Lagos in what we can assume is a massive public demonstration today.
