NOTE:

The team, comprised of Tom MacWright, Eric Gunderson, and Eric Fischer, were given every geotagged tweet from September 2011 (a whooping 3 billion) from data team Gnip, and together they used open source tools to turn the information into interfaces that make the social media technology a little less abstract.

Yeah, we've done this before, but there's nothing like playing more with design, and I don't think I'll ever get tired of staring at geotagged tweets and marveling at all they reveal about the forms of human settlement and activity.
