Andy Murray wins on Twitter

Twitter has used CartoDB to create a cool heatmap that shows every geotagged tweet that mentioned 'Wimbledon' during the two weeks of the tournament. The Wimbledon Heatmap uses Google Maps and, unlike many other Twitter heatmaps, actually allows you to read the tweets themselves (it even includes tweeted photographs).

If you are interested in the data behind the map, Twitter has also published an interesting blog post looking at which countries tweeted the most messages about Wimbledon and even explores which players tweeted the most during the tournament (Andy Murray wins again).
