Trending Timemachine

I have a flu since a couple of days and when I initially woke up and suffered from it I tweeted about it. At nearly the same time I saw that hacker friends of mine tweeted about their flu in USA, Germany and Singapore.

 

I thought it would be cool to be able to search for any keyword on Twitter and see an animation that shows how the topic spreads over the world over time.

 

  • User sees a Google Maps Worldmap
  • User enters any Twitter keyword (i.e. "Flu")
  • User sets any timespan (i.e. 2 weeks ago until now)
  • Map jumps from day to day (or hour to hour) and the colors of the countries change (green = just a few Tweets [...] red = really lots of tweets)

 

This is probably not exactly trivial... but i'm sure people would love to see the flu spreading all over the planet (or Justin Bieber)

Suggest ignoring country boundaries and just show raw geocode data, like with twittervision.
