Diverse yet United Public

Bowdoin College
NSA Tweets: Location and Language 
NSA Tweets with Latitude and Language Data around 
the World. Created with Batchgeo
The NSA and Race 
Map illustrating the Percent of the White Population in 
Huntington Beach, CA from the 2010 Census Data. Created 
with SocialExplorer
Exception to Diversity: Education 
Map illustrating the Percent of Residents with 
Some College Education in Huntington Beach, CA 
from the 2010 Census Data. Created with 
SocialExplorer
NSA Tweets Network 
The first 3,000 tweets from my Twitter dataset collected 
by Scraperwiki on February 17, 2014. Visualization 
created with Gephi.
What have I learned? 
• The people that tweet about the NSA are diverse 
– They live in different places 
– They speak different languages 
– They have different ethnic backgrounds 
• Tweets bounce between different people, but they tend 
to circulate within groups 
• Why? 
– Hard to say, but government is an authoritative and 
organizing body that unites us
