Tasty Tweets

Have you ever wondered what twitter tastes like?

Tasty Tweets is a data visualization experiment that allows users to explore current twitter trends through taste, with a press of a button.

Using the Twitter API, it collects tweets containing mentions of specific fruits such as blueberry, pineapple, apple and carrot and creates a smoothie that represents the blend. The smoothie is created based on the same proportions of fruits collected from the tweets. Because twitter trends change quickly, each smoothie has a unique palette of flavors.
