.@LadyGaga made me want to climb a mountain. She also made me want to ford every stream and I don't even know what that means. #Oscars2015

The location of this Ellen DeGeneres tweet is identified as California. Instead of using Twitter to search for the location of the sent tweet, I will embed an instagram photo of the tweet and get the location from there.
By getting the id number and inputting it into Instagram's API, I was able to find the latitude and longitude of the post.
By entering in the data to Google maps, I was able to create a map that identifies the exact location of the post.
With this information, I would begin building a story around celebrity sightseeing in California. I could make a graph of the spots in California where celebrities frequent the most, then turn that information into a comprehensive chart for readers looking to go stargazing during the next awards ceremony.
I have built a chart that will help provide a visual for readers. I would speak on the trends (which restaurants get the most famous visitors vs. which restaurants don't at all and whether closeness to the point of the post is related to the amount of celebrity traffic, which in this case does not seem to have a correlation)
I feel that the chart I've made is comprehensive, relevant, and useful for readers who are looking to spot celebrities at Hollywood restaurants. And it all started with a tweet about the Oscars!
