Baltimore entrepreneur Dave Troy, founder of firms including 410 Labs, was on WYPR’s “Maryland Morning” Friday talking about his recent visualization of Baltimore Twitter users.

Troy found that Baltimore’s Twitter landscape runs a spectrum from the mostly white “Smalltimore” universe of mainstream media and local brands to the mostly black and latino “DMV.” (The diverse Ravens Nation sits somewhere in between.)

Troy also spoke about his mapping project during Baltimore Innovation Week last September.
