TWITTER: Superbowl Timeline

NY Times Twitter Superbowl Timeline was a pretty cool idea showing what people twitter from what part of the country at what time during the game.

Apart from the fact that it is just a cool simple idea, it is interesting to see a whole country’s public consciousness on display over a live event. At the same time, it’s a bit scary to see a big nation being this synchronous in a medium that is all about variety and heterogeneity.

Also interesting: check out the separate timeline for which ads got the most feedback on twitter during commercial breaks.
