Okay, so you are either hepped on twitter or think it is the dumbest thing since the Clapper. I’d use it more if it wasn’t so popular and bogged down lately.
But twittervision makes for an interesting way to “watch” the tweets world wide. rather than seeing the flow of your local circle, you are watching disjointed pieces of conversation world wide… with each tweet geolocated on a Google Map.
I made a short screen capture of a few tweets bouncing in from across the map [QuickTime clip 3.4 Mb]
From what I understand, to geo-located a tweet, all you need do is to include in your message a code like “L:Phoenix, AZ” – I tried 2 tweets and watched the map, but never made it to the screen.
It’s a little mesmerizing to sit back and watch, in the same way at LiveMarks you can watch in real-time what people are tagging with del.icio.us
