Where are all the architects who use twitter based? As you know I’m keen to demonstrate how architects use twitter and who uses it. In the past I’ve found a Yahoo Pipes mashup with twitter and a map which shows up to the last 500 of the tweeting architects I follow with the league – follow the link to see it, but it is a bit flaky.
Unfortunately I do follow over 1000 architects, practices and emerging professionals now and I don’t believe that the yahoo pipes format will support this, but I’m still looking for a map of all our architects so you can zoom in and find some in your area.
Today I found another web application, Here be Twitterers, produced by Slovenian based @marandlab which will theoretically plot all the architects I follow, though they are at present stymied by Google’s API limit. Nevertheless I’m sure you’ll agree that it is a lovely map, and very useful.
To see a selection of the architects on a map click here – the screenshot above shows only 245 of them.
I’ve also found a few more web applications which aren’t so useful, so I’m on the lookout for the best Twitter/Googlemap mashup, do let me know if you find one!
