The NYC Twitter chart was assembled on behalf of James Cheshire, Ed Manley and Oliver O'Brien, students from the University College London (UCL). The UCL representatives took it upon themselves to monitor where and in what capacity diverse languages were spoken throughout New York.

Data was collected here via Twitter. Approximately 8.5 million Tweets were examined when putting together this study, speaking to its efficiency and relevancy to the city's residents.

Broadcasted posts were measured between January 2010 and February 2013. The team uncovered certain patterns as language-specific pockets were found, such as a greater concentration of diversity in language at the Theater District and at Times Square. Spanish and Portuguese were most frequently detected.
