Over 5,000 tweets using the #needsoftheoccupiers hashtag (used by occupations to list current needs) were collected from October to December of last year, then geo-located and sorted into top unique needs per occupation site. Tweeted needs included books for New York, garden supplies for San Francisco, Kool-Aid and Crystal Light in Orlando, and in Seattle, after police used pepper spray on protestors, Maalox, which can help neutralize and relieve pepper spray symptoms. Weather patterns across regional areas also effected various needs across the country.
