Local Twitter Trends on Google Maps


GeoMeme is the fun way to measure and share real-time local Twitter trends on a Google Map. Using the map it is possible to view Tweets from any location in the world. Positive Tweets are streamed on the left of the map and negative Tweets from that location are streamed on the right.

Tweets are located on the map using public data from a number of iPhone Twitter apps. The Google Map shows the thumbnail portraits of Twitters directly on the map. Clicking on any of the thumbnails scrolls the streaming Tweets to that person's message.

The site also uses the Google Static Maps API to show thumbnails of suggested locations in the search box. The thumbnail suggestions actually appear and change as you type a location. Very cool!
