I'd like to know what options there are to customise a cartodb torque timeline control. I've seen awesome visualisations made with CartoDB/Torque for FIFA '14 matches by twitterdata ( for instance http://cartodb.com/v/worldcup/match/?TC=x&vis=31ed2e2a-06ce-11e4-8c1d-0e230854a1cb&h=t&t=Brazil,FFCC00%7CGermany,B40903&m=7%2F8%2F2014%2017:00:00%20GMT,7%2F8%2F2014%2018:52:00GMT&g=108%7C11,23,24,26,29,87,97#/2/-17.6/-5.6/0 ).
From trying to read that code I inferred that twitter data created a modified Torque to do just that.
Before going in that direction, what are the best ways to customise Torque Timeline controls?
What I specifically want to achieve is have a graph displayed above the timeline that 'guides' the user as to when events happen. In this example: https://emileaben.cartodb.com/viz/6a6d789c-8430-11e4-a483-0e4fddd5de28/public_map , there is an event at around 7:32 CEST (lots of red dots in the US, representing Internet connectivity going down), and having a graph with number of events over time, on the timeline axis would really help guide users to what is going on.
