This week on Twitter was dominated by 2013 turning into 2014 and, more specifically, the difficult transition into writing a new date on your checks. There were resolutions, resolutions quickly broken and even some reminiscing the young new year. There was also Larry King expressing his excitement over Billy Ray Cyrus’ new hip hop version of “Achy Breaky Heart.”
We’ve reached a point where any big cultural event is going to be accompanied by the world tweeting about it in real time. This this New Year’s, Twitter put together an interactive graphic charting the first tweets of 2014 around the globe. The graphic allows you to hit play and watch as 2014 slowly creeps across the map and “Happy New Year!” is tweeted in over 30 languages. Click here to have fun with that for a few minutes.
