Using the new control in the top left of the map, you can simply slide to any hour from the last 7 days, and the page will update with trends from that time. You can also zoom & pan around the map as you normally would, while viewing trends through this special historical view. To get back to the latest trends, simply move the slider back to the far right.
Also, in case you missed it last week, you can now filter trends by type, checkout this blog post for more information.
Please be sure to let us know if you have any queries, comments or feedback!
We’ve just released a small, but very notable update to Trendsmap Plus that now allows you to select specific types of trending words on the map. Now you can just see the Trending hashtags, and users, or just the words etc. There is a new control in the top right of the map that allows you to do this. This example shows a display of hashtags and users only around Sao Paulo :

Also we have fixed a few bugs that may have caused you to in some cases ‘pan off the end of the world’. Now you can pan around & around the world as many times as you like, and not end up with a blank map.
As always, please let us know if you have any comments/queries/suggestions, we love feedback. Stay tuned for more updates coming soon!
Since we introduced our first country based ‘local’ pages, we have had numerous requests for other countries to be added. Recently however we added many, many more specific country pages. New countries added are from across the globe; Europe, Asia, Americas and beyond. We now have 107 more countries with local pages listed, bringing the total to 129. You can see a full list of countries, and cities on our main local page.
Below is a sample screenshot from the new Turkey country page:
We have some more exciting changes, just around the corner. Please sign up for our product updates (see the footer on the home page) to be one of the first to know.
Since Trendsmap launched in 2009 we’ve gone from processing about four million tweets a day to dealing with more than 80 million tweets a day. With this dramatic rise in the number of tweets, the extraction of videos, images and links has struggled to keep pace, that is until now.
Processing of these has now been upgraded to provide an even richer multi-media experience. Trendsmap now has many more videos, images, and links related to trends on the main map page, topic pages, as well as on the individual local pages.
Along with this enhancement, we have been working hard to keep the spammers out of the system, and have dramatically reduced the amount of content leaking in from these sources. These improvements are an ongoing process though and if you have any suggestions, or see any spam on the site, then please let us know.
