Discover the world’s tweets in realtime

I’ll keep this short as the site visually says it all but basically you can view the world’s recent tweets in real time. This page maps the last geolocalized  tweets delivered by the twitter stream API.

Each second, twenty new tweets are added and the map is then updated in real time (the site only keeps the last one million tweets) and the twenty oldest tweets are removed to keep the same number of points on the map. It’s abslutely fascinating – if a little ‘big brother’.
