Smoking Tweets

In our previous project, we visualized data depicting the highest CO2 emitting states in the U.S. When starting this assignment, we decided to take that information a step further. We asked ourselves, “How do the people living in these states feel about the fact that they emit so much? Are they doing anything to change it?” In an effort to answer our own questions, we decided to create a Tweet Map as our mashup that showed not only to top emitting states, but also the top emitting cities within those states and individual tweets from people living in them.
