Another example of how global the Rob Ford scandal has become via harvested tweets with geographic coordinates. This example is a harvest of #rofo, #robford, #topoli, and #ShirtlessHorde.
The harvest took place on July 6, 2014, and should cover the discussion around the time of Rob Ford’s return on June 30, 2014 to July 6, 2014. The tweets with available geo-information represents less than 10% of all tweets harvested.

I’m downloading the 1,424,682 images now, and hope to do something similar to what I did with the #elxn42 images. While we’re waiting for the images to download, here are the 10 most tweeted embedded image urls:
