The (animated) network graphic, which visually resembles some sort of dense, galactic star constellation, reveals all the conversations between the people working at Twitter over a time period of one week.
Though mostly hidden, this chart also includes a few very nifty interactive features. Firstly, one can choose to simulate and display the conversations as they happened over time. In addition, hovering over a node shows all the in- and outgoing messages to and from that person. Selecting a node conveys the first-, second- and third-degree connections between individual members of the group. Holding a node for 0.5 seconds, and dragging it to a different node, shows the respective dialogues.
