Zero Geography : Mapping Twitter in Francophone Africa
maps of tweets in African cities that I posted yesterday. So, here are ten more from Francophone Africa: Algiers, Bamako, Abidjan, Nouakchott, Kinshasa, Ougadougou, Libreville, Dakar, Conkary, and Douala.
Compared to places like Cairo, Johannesburg, or Nairobi, we see very little activity in most of these cities - with the notable exception of Abidjan.
Remember that we are only mapping geocoded tweets here. But these patterns might nonetheless give us a very crude indication of some of the distinct geographies of contemporary digital divides.
