Ever wonder what diffusion ideas and information on Twitter might look like? Whisper, a project shown at IEEE's VisWeek 2012 back in October, "is an online visualization tool for tracing the process of information diffusion on Twitter in real time." Their live demo isn't online yet, but they've posted some images of the "diffusion story" of last year's 6.8 magnitude earthquake and the following tsunami in Japan here. This promises to be a very interesting tool to understand communication on Twitter.
