The Pothole Twitter Map

PG Pothole

The British may have #UKSnow but the residents of Prince George, British Columbia have PG Pothole. PG Pothole works on a similar principal to the #UKSnow map but, instead of mapping Tweets about snow, it maps massages reporting potholes.

To add a pothole to this Google Map all you need to do is add the hashtag #pgpotholes to a Tweet. If the tweet is geotagged or includes an address then it will appear on the map. The result, hopefully, will be a great guide for the drivers of Prince George as to which roads to avoid when driving across town.

Where did Georgia come from George in Prince George, British Columbia? Is it the same as Wikipedia saying The
AAA serves all America when it really serves the United States of America only? Canada, Mexico are also part of North America, then there is Central America and South America!
