@kristw (https://twitter.com/kristw) will share a behind-the-scenes view of his latest data visualization project, which shows how each #GameOfThrones (https://twitter.com/hashtag/GameOfThrones?src=hash) episode was discussed on Twitter. Using data visualization, we can extract and reveal the stories of every episode from fans’ Tweets.
