Abstract

In this paper, we explore the design space of word-sized visualizations—small graphics, usually the same size as a word, that visualize data in or related to a text—for displaying and exploring categories in social media feeds such as Twitter streams. Social media contributions are typically microposts, which allow us to attach word-sized visualizations to show category assignment, diversity, or development. We consider and combine word-sized visualizations made up of basic marks and visual variables, existing word-sized visualization concepts, as well as large text visualizations. In an application example we show how word-sized visualizations can evince context changes within a discussion on Twitter and reveal topic diversity.
