TwitterVision is Way Cool

I’ll be the first to admit – I don’t think I’ll ever be a Twitter user. Nobody wants to hear about my adventures at the dentist’s office or how I answer a couple of hundred emails a day while playing death match style ping pong games in between.

But when I came across TwitterVision, I was stunned. Now here’s a totally trivial but totally sweet app, a waste of bandwidth, time and effort but sure as hell worth it all.

TwitterVision simply shows geotagged tweets with people’s photos overlaid on Google Earth in a real-time fashion. You have the option of classic Maps view as well as Google Earth globe view.

I guarantee you’ll waste ten minutes if you check it out.
