Another sports related post, this time inspired by Mo Farah's amazing double gold medals (in the 5000m and 10000m) over the last couple of weeks at the London Olympics.
I used the gRaphael Charting Library and the Twitter search API to show how the rate at which tweets containing the hashtag #gomo varied before during and just after the 5000m London Olympics final. Hover over the chart to display the text for selected tweets.
The main features of the chart are a small peak just before the race starts followed by the huge peak after Mo wins. And I thought it was a long way to jog to the bus stop when running late in the morning!
Note that for best results (probably for any results) you'll need to use a browser which supports scalable vector graphics (you should be OK unless using internet explorer 8 or earlier)
