Ok, so a warning to you: If you think Twitter is a waste of time, this twitter toy will prove it. If you are prone to Twitter dependency do not, under any circumstance go and look at Twittervision.
What is Twittervision?
Take a map, hook it up to the live feed of everything coming through Twitter. Show all the tweets on the map. In real-ish time. Don’t like a flat map? Use their 3D view which takes a globe and revolves it to the location of the tweeter.
Is there any business use for Twittervision?
The short answer is: Nope.
The long answer is:
- Buzz monitoring.
- Putting breaking “news” in geographical context.
- Gaining inspiration from random sources.
- Reading small chunks of foreign languages.
If you want to know more about business uses for Twitter (strong emphasis on real estate Twitter usage but there’s something there for everyone I think) go to the Twitter for Real Estate or Business page.
