All geotagged tweets mentioning Premier League teams were collected between 18 Aug. and 19 Dec. 2012. The number of unique users mentioning team hash tags were counted and aggregated to UK postcode districts. The data is normalized by a 0.25% sample of all geotagged tweets in the postcode district.
