Reddit user LucasCu90 used the R package twitteR to retrieve all tweets that were sent with #Irma and a Geocode of central Miami (25 mile radius) from Saturday September 9, to Sunday September 10, 2017 (the period of Irma’s approach and initial landfall on the Florida Keys and the mainland). From the 29,000 tweets he collected, Lucas then retrieved the 600 most common words and overlaid them on a map of Florida, with their size relative to their frequency in the data. The result is quite nice!
