Mapping Twitter Followers

Twitter is my favourite Web 2.0 tool, a great cross between professional and social network.

Following Alan Parkinson’s blog post here. I have mapped my twitter followers. This is extremely simple using this site:

It was surprising to see how many followers I have outside the United Kingdom.

Interestingly; though probably not suprising the most common term among my followers was ‘Teacher’ and the next two top terms were ‘geography’ and ‘technology’. The term geek also appeared in the list.

EDIT: I am not entirely happy with how the map embedded but it will do for now.
