Twittermap: Mashup of the Day

Okay, I’m starting to get into this Twitter thing. Matt Dickman helped, having met him at CK’s salon at Flute Friday night (he also showed me how to incorporate Google Analytics without veering off my safety blanket of the TypePad template, and I now know far more about my blog visitors than I need to).

Catching up on the news, Read/Write Web directed me to the TwitterMaps mashup. All you do is add a location tag to your Twitter message (e.g., L:90210) and you’re included on the map of who’s where. You can even differentiate between work and home locations, though all the other functionality’s more than I need. It’s a great local service to find other Twitterers (or is it Twitterites, or just Twits?) in your area.
