Twitter Company Conversations [] is yet another impressive data visualization designed and developed by Santiago Ortiz.

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.
