Real-time Twitter Activity on Google Maps
Tweereal is a Google Map of Twitter users activity in real-time. The map displays an animation of the latest Tweets that contain geo-tags.
The Twitter messages are shown on the map by expanding coloured circles. It is possible to adjust the size and the opacity of the circles on the map. The map also includes slider controls that allow the user to control the length of the circle animation and the precision of their location.
