Twitter Language Visualization Part 4: Middle East.
"For all the talk of social media in the Arab Spring, the Middle East’s Twitter activity doesn’t really stack up to North America’s and Europe’s. But comparing this region to those two more developed ones is apples and oranges: South America, South Asia, and especially Africa show less Twitter activity than the Middle East and its veiny network of Arabic (pink) tweeters—along with a strong Hebrew-tweeting (green) presence in Israel and Turkish-tweeting presence in Turkey (red). Those dark spots on the map—Egypt and Pakistan, for example—show where crackdowns on Twitter have occurred in the past."
