#Assange speaking an Tweeting
Not much of a response on twitter from the location to be frank, saw not noteworthy rise in tweeting and could only find 4 people tweeting about Assange from location with geo-locations on. Almost not RTs of their tweets. Going on the calculation that 5% of tweets have geo-tags I would estimate that perhaps 80 people were tweeting.
Above shows the overall level of twitter activity (including RTs) in a 250 meter radius of the Ecuador Embassy, where Julian Assange is suppose to give a speech. It will be interesting to see if Tweeting rises during the speech. Below you can see the actual tweets within one KM of where Assange is speaking.
