I can’t remember the last time I really enjoyed Twitter. I mean, I’m on it all the time, and I enjoy interacting with everyone, but the feed is mostly junk. Partly this is because Twitter tries to promote the madness that is going on in the world, so we’ll click on it, and partly because 2020 is completely nuts. But there are so many great things I see on Twitter that I enjoy, and it reminds me of when Twitter started. Case in point, the 30 Day Map Challenge
. I know those on Twitter have seen it because so many of our friends have taken part. I had the hashtag up on my Twitter client all month, just enjoying map after map. The greatest part of it was it wasn’t just geographers that were doing the work; it was everyone who enjoys maps and mapping.
I do want to highlight the work of David Friggens
, who has aggregated all the amazing maps on a website. The amount of work there is beyond brilliant. From small, simple traditional maps to amazing 3D and AR mapping, people have posted on what they are passionate about. I particularly enjoyed the work of Daren Willman
of Major League Baseball.
