NodeXL is designed for network visualization, but we've begun to
integrate text in interesting ways. For example see:

In the graph, which was created by Marc Smith,users are clustered
based on their network connections (not their use of words). Next, the
most common words are overlaid on top of the network clusters to give
a sense of what each cluster is discussing. Data for this network is
pulled from everyone who said "pinkslime" on Twitter during a certain
time period (see details underneath graph).

I am looking for examples of applications that visualise language for purposes of sense making, awareness, insight, informing action etc. If anyone has examples to share, I would be grateful if they can contact me.
