"I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror ... I fear something terrible has happened." â Obi-Wan Kenobi
I was told there would be no math, but the above graph was put together using the fantastic Twitter StreamGraphs and features a timeline of the previous 1,000 Tweets containing the term "Kevin Gregg(notes)." You probably shouldn't have any trouble identifying the part of the graph where the Cubs now-former closer blew Monday's game to the Padres and became a trending topic on everyone's favorite social networking service.
My favorite part of the visual representation? The top five words associated with Gregg tweets have been: "hate" "($#!@)" "blow" "save" and "#cubs". What a thing, technology.
