wellcomecollectionThis Wellcome Image Award winner shows 92,915 tweets containing #breastcancer that were collected over an eight-week period.
This graphical visualisation represents Twitter users as dots, called nodes, and lines connecting the nodes represent the relationships between the Twitter users. The ‘double yolk’ structure at the top of the image indicates common mentions of two prominent accounts.
The graphic was made by Eric Clarke, Richard Arnett and Jane Burns from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland @rcsi_irl. The primary goal of graphical visualisation is to make complex data more accessible and understandable, allowing viewers to explore connections which may not be apparent when viewing complex data sets.
Today is the final day of our Wellcome Image Awards Instagram takeover. We hope that you have enjoyed it as much as we have! To find out where Wellcome Image Awards exhibitions are opening near you follow the link in our profile.
