   I’ve been playing with Twitter data over the last week, archiving Algerian, Egyptian, Iranian, and Chinese tweets.  I thought I’d bring the story a little closer to home this time by archiving tweets from Wisconsin Union protesters on the #wiunion tag.  Grab the dataset of 165,593 tweets here, and check out the two figure of 5-minute tweet counts and highest frequency accounts below.  The code to generate the figures is also available at this gist.
