Mapping Twaddle

Twaddler is a Google Map that displays geo-tagged Tweets in real-time. Just share your location with Twaddler and you can sit back and view a live stream of what is happening around you.

If there is something happening on the other side of the world that you want to keep abreast of then you can switch your location on the map and instead view a live stream of Twitter messages from the new location. Twaddle uses the Marker Animation function from the Google Maps API to drop and bounce each new marker onto the map so that it easy to visualise the location of each new Tweet as it appears on the map.
