My top ten tweets of 2016

So here are my top ten tweets of 2016, ranked by the number of times it was seen on Twitter.

In 10th, 9th, 8th and 7th position are some random tweets of photographs taken in various branches of WHSmith.

These tweets were re-tweeted by the amusing @WHS_Carpet Twitter account. If like me you grew up in the 1970s and 1980s, WHSMith was a real high street institution, which though surviving today still seems to have lost its way somewhat.

My 6th most popular tweet was an image comic strip of a Dara O’Briain routine on video games.

I was surprised by how popular the 5th tweet was, which was about some great images from JD Hancock on the Flickr.

A reply to Google was number four.

I was disappointed that NERC did not name their boat BoatyMcBoatface, but I did like how they embraced the whole thing, as I said in my third most popular tweet.

A work tweet was number two…

And my most popular tweet of 2016 was a silly comment for #WednesdayWisdom

Just a friendly reminder….

Happy New Year.

Get Back to the Future at iTunes, and get Back to the Future II (the one set in 2015) also from iTunes. Don’t forget the third film… Read my review.

Twitter Geo-Visualisations

Some interesting images created by Twitter of all the geo-tagged tweets they have in their database, placing all these locations into a single image.

Visualization: Europe

So each of the “dots” on this image represents a single geo-tagged tweet.

See more of the images on the Flickr.

Bath Twit Trip

Twitter made the local news tonight.

It’s a nice idea for those that were involved today, but I can’t see how the longevity of this unless someone somewhere is curating the results of the tag #bathtwitrip (or is it #bathtwittrip).

In case you were wondering here is the photograph from the weatherman.
