// My 1st Infographic: Twitter Data Vis//

Here it is! The assignment was to track a week of our personal media consumption and compare it to a national average. So for the past few days, I’ve noted down what people in two Tweetdeck lists talked about from 6-10PM. Some heavy tweeters definitely made my data imbalanced, but eh, what are you gonna do?

Honestly, the data didn’t mean much to me. It was when I started designing that I got really into the assignment. I had this idea where I used variations of the Twitter bird to represent how many tweets fell into a category. I found one playing basketball! But I was too lazy to continue using the icons for the second page, so it looked disconnected, and my GTF called me out on it. 

It’s not perfect since like I said I’m not a designer, but I’m very pleased with it. It was much more fun to put together than my magazine layout and spreads. I just liked playing around with the placement of text and graphics. (You’d be surprised at how much Twitter art exists out there.) Hmmmm, maybe I’ll brave learning design after all…

Interesting how big of a difference exists between bloggers and Twitter users when it comes to choices of subjects and sources. I&#8217;m not surprised.
