Next up, run summarize.py to get produce the tweets.txt file, which has one tweet per line. This makes for slightly faster processing.

Then run split_by_emoji.py to extract a huge json document called split_emojis.json which has for each emoji a list of coordinates and timestamps - the coordinates are on a 3600x1800 grid while the timestamps are in
