Tweets from Roosvelt Island Ridge

Apparently the folks at University College London have created a contoured NYC map based on Tweet traffic naming sites across NYC and other major cities. Apparently the number of tweets referring to Roosevelt Island are substantial enough that the contour designation of a ridge applies to us on par with Williamsburg.

See "Roosvelt Island Ridge" underlined in red. Now the question is whether the spelling error is indicative of how often those tweets mispell Roosevelt as "Roosvelt" or if the folks in London can't spell themselves.
