Twitter is watching you – and it’s cool

Just Landed – Test Render (4 hrs) from blprnt on Vimeo.

So, you know how you can search for phrases on Twitter? It’s actually a really useful search tool; if you search Star Trek, for example or visit #startrek on hashtags, you get everything from 140 character reviews to links to longer blog posts and articles.

Jer Thorp took the search idea a little bit further — he illustrated it. In the video above, Thorp mined all the data of tweets saying “Just landed in” or “Just arrived in” over 4 hours. Then he made it pretty. Watch the video! Maybe one was you!

What will they think of next?
