Tracking twitter activity from major venues in the US on Black Friday

Mall of America, North America's largest Mall by store count is seeing steady tweeting through the night. At about 1 AM local time we say about 40 geo-tagged tweets an hour coming from the Mall, indicationg thousands of shoppers are out in Mall of America for Black Friday.

Real time tweets from Macy's in New York City.  These reached over 500 geo-tagged tweets an hour doing the Macy's day Parade so it will be interesting to see if the shoppers will be out tweeting.

The Apple Store at Fifth Avenue in New York City.  Anticipate a lot of people tweeting about new Apples at this Mecca for Apple fangirls and fanboys.  I have to admit I make it a point to go when I visit New York.

Walmarts don't tweet? The massive Walmart in Albany New York is showing no real tweeting despite the presence of what we assumed to be hundreds or even thousands of shoppers, interesting to watch.
