Twitter hot spots

Check out this incredible live heat map of Twitter use.  Early in the morning here, you can see New York starting to wake up while Tukey and Indonesia are already on fire.  I'm not so sure about those little water droplets.

Very interesting usage of data in the combination with a social media platform. I am interested to know more about how this map is created/ updated in real time, do you know? I found this half hour ago and was wondering why Brazil was so "hot" and I checked out the news to find out that JP Morgan just released a survey indicating Brazil and Colombia as the most promising countries for investment opportunities over the next three years... Brazil is HOT alright.
