Blog Post: Calling All TweetPingers

For those of you fully embedded in the Twitterverse (hit me up here), there is nothing like watching the world react in real time to what is happening around them. Wouldn’t it be great to have a graphical, global representation of that? 

Check out Tweetping, a new web application build on the Node.js platform that lights up your part of the world when you tweet. You can literally watch the world wake up and post the day away on the social media platform. It not only represents data on a map, but also shows hashtags and users providing the data. Data is aggregated based upon region as well. I spent one morning actually watching the West Coast start their day while I answered emails. Was really cool.

The world gets smaller every day, I think this app is only the beginning of what we are going to see from Node.js developers in the months and years to come. Check it out!
