Floating Sheep’s map charting hate tweets, which allows you to search on several flavors of hate, is a creative use of data and mapping to raise awareness.

I’m not sure which setting this screen-cap is from, but if you set it to all homophobic tweets, the eastern side of the country is RED. If you set it to total racist tweets, the east side of the country is RED. They even make fun of disabled people more than the rest of the country. Jeeez…. about to go back east for two weeks. Hopefully I won’t run into any of the reasons I left that side of the country in the first place.
