There is a crap-load of location-centric Twitter apps! All that they do usually is open a window withholding a tweet above the location on a map where the tweet was sent. The experience is fun 5 seconds, and then you yawn. A few minutes ago, I discovered the most beautiful way Twitter has ever been integrated to a map: Stweet.
What Stweet does is take a tweet, spot where it was tweeted from, captures a Streetview image of that location, and integrates the tweet and the image in a simple interface that I find extremely poetic:
The only downside is that Stweet doesn’t offer any specific features to interact with fellow 140 chars talkers. Here is one suggestion that would make Stweet really dope:
Since Streetview lets you ‘walk around’ neighborhoods, it would be awesome if I could walk around my neighborhood in Streetview and view the tweets that were posted in the area. I don’t think I could get tired of that, because it would be like spying on my neighbors from my window.
Stweet already have +15 cities available for stweeting, and I truly hope that the team will bring this project to the next level. Who knows, maybe they will be the first to bring Twitter to an augmented reality…
