Each marker expands for a moment after it is first shown on the map; a marker’s final radius represents the total number of followers the user has, so essentially the potential impact of that tweet,
We love these examples of mixed dynamic and static data representations using CartoDB. Often when exploring data, a single representation isn’t enough to tell a complete story. Here, the dual maps really show the power of using of CartoDB’s SQL API to grab data and display it in two distinct and complementary views. If you love these maps, shoot us a tweet! Who knows, it may make it into a CartoDB map soon!
