Streaming Tweets on Google Maps

PlanetEye Live Twitter Map

PlanetEye have put together a Google Map that summarises all geotagged tweets from around the world, filtered by recency (last hour, last 24hrs & last 7 days). The map utilises Twitter;s recent streaming API.

The Planet Eye Live Twitter Map summarises real time data into clusters of information based on your zoom level. These clusters break apart into smaller clusters as you zoom closer into the map.

The map comes with a dynamic url link so that you can share the current map view with your friends. The map also comes with an embed option allowing you to share the map in your own website or blog.
