Abstract: LOOM is advanced as a new visualisation for changes in ranks and trends in power-law data that is changing dynamically over time. A comparison between LOOM and existing methods for visualising such data (e.g.,time-series graphs, typical analytics dashboards). Several exemplar data sets are shown, using LOOM, drawn from the tracking of news stories on Twitter. The basis for the LOOM visualisation is elaborated and it is shown how it avoids the pitfalls arising in other line-graph representations.
