The journey of one lonely tweet

One evening I was aimlessly looking through tweets on Twitter and I came across a very cool idea. Showing the power of Twitter visually, by mapping all the places people retweet it in a close amount of time.

Below you can see the journey of my one little tweet in roughly 3 hours – I think you will agree it’s quite impressive!

I have shown this to the children in my class and explained how the internet is such a wide resource that can now be used to such great extents. Being able to reach such a wide range of people with one small thing, on a Sunday evening really emphasises the power and opportunities that are now available to us!

The possibilities are really endless, the benefits for increasing global awareness in the children – their understanding of countries and continents and their experiences of people from different cultural backgrounds could be huge!
