Interactive Twitter map shows global outrage

The world is looking at the current state of social justice in the United States. An recent interactive map displays the spread of protests and interests over the ill fated grand jury decisions not to indict police officers for the killings of unarmed Black males Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and Eric Garner in New York City.  The map starts looking at trends on Twitter from Nov. 23 to Dec. 5, 2014, throughout the globe and the results are amazing.
