People use Twitter to quickly update status. Seeing where these people are in real time, this experience brings an event or place to live right on the Bing map in front of you. You can zoom in on street view or leave it global.
Twitter Bing Maps let you filter your search results by topic, person, or location. After filtering your search, you can paste this map into your web page or blog – anywhere you can embed HTML. Use the Bing Twitter Map to track a topic of interest to you around the world or follow the thoughts and whereabouts of your favorite person.
Bing Twitter Maps displays public geotagged tweets over the past seven days. Many Twitter apps allow Twitter users to add a location to Tweet, a feature that Twitter introduced in fall 2009.
To add a location to your tweets, you first need to “enable geotagging” on your Twitter profile page. Secondly, you need to make sure that you are using a Twitter application that supports adding locations to tweets.
