Internet Sensations: they are often viral, powerful and somewhat irrational. What starts as individual expression becomes capable of influencing the collective attention of all the users—what they will like, do, and care about.
 
 
In collaboration with Robert Learsch (M.I.T) and Ijeoma Azodo (Brown University), we  created an alternative way to experience such digital phenomena. We measure the popularity of Twitter hashtags and transform these data into haptic feedback, which allows anyone to truly experience internet sensations as physical sensations.
We adopted a Python based program to count real time Hashtag activities on Twitter.
