Watch How Retweets Ripple Out Through the Internet

Watch How Retweets Ripple Out Through the Internet A quick tweet can blast through Twitter like wildfire. All it takes is a click of a button and anyone can help push that 140 character shout just a little further through cyberspace, until everybody knows. This is what it looks like when that happens.

Where Does My Tweet Go” is a neat little Twitter analytics tool developed by France’s MFG Labs. It’s a very simple concept; instead of just telling you how many times one of your tweets (or someone else’s) got retweeted, it traces the viral spread from person to person to person, ever outward to Twitter’s furthest reaches.

Each graph starts with a dot in the center for the original tweet, with a ring around it for the first wave of retweets. Each concentric circle represents yet another wave, like ripples in a pond, while the pie-slices emanating from each tweet show the overall reach of every echo.

For the moment, the service is still in beta, so your choice of tweets is rather limited. You can sign up and look at the spread of your own (if you’re popular enough) or browse through some of the (mostly French) accounts and trends the service currently supports. Eventually, it should roll out to the net at large, giving some color and shape to ever-increasing retweet frenzies. Too bad that hacked AP tweet isn’t loaded into the beta. That would be a tweetsplosion worth seeing. Maybe (but hopefully not) next time. [Where Does My Tweet Go via Wired]

British Teenagers Would Rather Lose TV Than The Internet

3D TV

Young British teenagers would rather lose access to a TV than access to the Internet or their cell phones, reports the Guardian.

According to new research carried out by British communications regulator, Ofcom, 18 percent of 12 to 15-year-olds said they would miss TV the most if all media was taken away. That compares to 28 percent who said they would miss their cell phones and 25 percent who said they would miss the Internet.

A year ago, TV was missed as much as the Internet.

However, according to Digital Spy, the study also showed that young teenagers are watching more TV than ever. Viewing figures have increased by almost two hours a week since 2007, and “catch-up” services online are increasingly being used.
