Display Your Twitter Friends on a World Map

Today I started thinking about how cool it would be if I could see the locations of my Twitter friends on a Map. After spending some time Googling for such a tool I was only able to find one, and interestingly enough it only became available a few days ago.

I came across this post by Andy Murdoch who has created a Yahoo Pipe that puts nice pushpin representations of all your Twitter users on a map of the world. It also allows you to scroll through them displaying their names and Bio’s. Also, since it’s a Yahoo Pipe you can embed it into your own site.

Here’s an example using my Twitter account.
