A global support network

Thanks to Jon Wolton for the reminder of TWEEPSMAP.
Since the last time I used this, my network of followers on Twitter has grown to over 2300 real people..
Here's my map and global network....


There are followers from all continents, which is good to see.
Around 40% of my followers are from outside the UK, which is also interesting...
There's also an analysis here.
Get your own by going to Tweepsmap - don't forget to change your settings back once you've finished too...

Interesting, I can see some applications for this with regard to teaching development. Do you have to know full log in details for twitter (password etc) or can you search via username?

You have to login and enable the app so that it can browse your followers, so I don't think you can just put in any account and see the details....
Interesting though.

One useful website for visualising the connections between countries is here: Facebook connections

That's a shame, could have compared famous figures from different countries and the spread of their followers. Would have been able to link with development and globalisation

I suppose you could always tweet them and ask them to use the site and share the results... that's possible...
