Tweet to the Stars with Google Maps
Earthtwit is a very cool mashup of the Google Earth plugin and Twitter. The application allows you to browse Google Earth and post an update to Twitter with a link to any location in Google Earth. When your followers on Twitter click on the short URL of the view you submitted they will be taken to the view in the Google Earth plugin.
Earthtwit has now added the option to view Google Sky, Google's map of the night sky. This means that you can now Tweet a link to your favourite images of the stars. If you don't use Twitter you can just grab the URL of a view and share that with you friends via e-mail, on Facebook or on your own website.
