Abstract

A vast amount of thousands of Twitter messages are produced per second. As not only researchers and data professionals are interested in utilizing this data, other people could make use of specific insights. Without the skill to conduct queries with expert systems, tweets must tediously be read entirely in the traditional way. The creativity gets constrained and neglected in this tiring and cognitive demanding process. However these tweets could be a great source for conducting investigations as for example in sociocultural creative research, as writing for lyrics, scripts or even books. Writers could benefit from this huge amount of free accessible information about public opinions on recent topics. In this paper, we introduce a mobile visualization tool and its underlying visualization concept: Paint in Tongues. It can be used in different ways to visualize text-based social media content. Moreover it enables users that are unexperienced at information visualization to easily interact with the data and utilize it. Techniques that even enhance creativity, as doodling and combining different media, are utilized in an interactive visualization process to augment the data analysis for creative and visual oriented people.
