A World of Tweets

by Andrew DiFiore

A World of Tweets shows real-time tweets from around the world in visually appealing heatmap. The more tweets, the “hotter” the area appears. You can even view the map in 3D Stereo (red/blue paper lens glasses not included).

Developed by Carlo Zapponi and Andreas Markdalen at frog design (Milan) using HTML5. The geolocation data is made possible by the Twitter Streaming API and the Yahoo! Placemaker service.
