Tweetping Shows the Worldwide Power of Twitter

In a recent post, I talked about how Foursquare is flaunting their check-in data via heatmap. Now Tweetping has upped the ante with this map that highlights tweets and hashtags throughout all the continents of the world.

You have to watch it very carefully to see every nook and cranny of what was the last hashtag or Twitter account referenced, but it’s very cool to watch the world leverage social media (and data) in this capacity.

I wish you could go a bit more granular and see some of the messages being posted, but maybe that’s on the “to do” list for a future version of the application.

If you’re an avid Twitter user or just love cool graphics, definitely give Tweetping a looksee.
