Brazil vs Croatia - The Twitter Map
Last night's opening game in the World Cup between Brazil and Croatia was watched by football fans around the world. In 150 of those countries football fans also took to Twitter to talk about the game.
Brazil v Croatia: how the inaugural match played out on Twitter is another great example of a CartoDB animated map of Tweets. Brazil might have been lucky to have won last night's opening game but they were the clear winners of the Twitter conversations taking place around the game.
I like how the goals and other important moments during the game have been added to the timeline on this map. This does provide some context to the evolving patterns on the map.
