It’s been the talk of the day in the data visualization community on Twitter: The set of beautiful images that the company published, representing all the geotagged messages since 2009 in different cities and regions of the globe.

A continuing curiosity is about the geographical shapes that surface in geotagged Tweets.”
Each dot in the maps represent one geotagged tweet. The full set of images is available on Flickr, but we picked few to share with you:
