Map showing where London tweets – Hackney is #1 sort of

Media_httpstrangemaps_gcjiv

From Strange Maps http://strangemaps.wordpress.com/2010/07/03/470-the-twittering-classes/ comes this contoured map which shows where the tweeting classes mostly are in London.

While I accept his analysis that the tweeters are mainly in Soho, Clerkenwell and Hackney these are largely places where people work – and tweet from work.

So the areas that have fewer work places, but lots of tweeters, are a truer reflection of where the tweeting classes are.

So judging by the map I’d nominate the following

1 Hackney
2 Dalston
3 Islington
4 Camden
5 Elephant and Castle

I spose you could also say those areas are freelanceville with lots of home workers too, but we could go on like this all day.

Interesting to see how few tweeters there are on the Isle of Dogs – bunch of bankers I guess
