If the image above doesn’t excite you – or at the very least, greatly intrigue you – you can’t call yourself a geek. What you see above is the volume of tweets containing “#Euro2012″ by country during the Euro 2012 Football Tournament – That’s “soccer” for the Yanks.

Beautifully illustrated data and incredibly informative! You can literally see when the action happened. Better yet, the graph is interactive! At the #Euro2012 Visualization Site, you can see the data broken down by country and game. Can you guess when the goals happened?

This is how every geek wishes social data could be displayed. Working with analytics everyday I could only dream that, 1. All my clients could read that graph, 2. It would be easy to assemble such a great display of data.
