ReTweet Revolution is a visual exploration of the most popular conversation
threads that were passed amongst Twitter users at the time of the events
following the recent Iranian elections earlier in June of 2009. The applet
displays 372 of the most popular threads extracted from a pool of over
230,000 messages posted on Twitter between June 14th and June 24th, polled
from the public timeline at regular intervals.

By clicking on a specific topical thread, it is possible to view its network
structure: how the message was ReTweeted from one user to another and how
its content changed as it was passed along. It is also possible to see posts
that were obviously "retweets" but with no attribution to the original
