Snow Twitter Map

February 6 2009, 12:27am

Given the recent press surrounding whats happened in the uk regarding snow.

I thought it would be interesting to use the hash tags of uk to snow to plot this on a map.

What are hash tags?

Hash tags are like tags on Flickr, only added inline to your post. You create a hashtag simply by prefixing a word with a hash symbol: #hashtag.

Why are they useful?

They provide analytic reports and indexing features to allow users to track what's happening now.

Here is my mashup.

For those interested here is the KML to the Google Earth KML showing #uksnow and how the posts developed.
