Not all Twitter apps are useful, some are simply fun to use.  The app called Twittervision fits into the second category.  This particular app is not very useful, but could help you pass some time and learn some things along the way all while having a little fun.

What is Twittervision?  Twittervision is a Twitter app that is powered by the Google Earth program.  The app take current updates and tracks them on the world map.  You can view updates in real time and the site shows you exactly where the update originates from.

Yes you will see updates in all languages from around the world.  This could either make things confusing or interesting, depending upon your take of it.  But this app does open your eyes to some of the thoughts from those around the globe.

You may be surprised to find out how many different languages Twitter users speak in the U.S. alone, or you may try to decipher what someone is saying in another language.  Perhaps even put your own meaning to someone else’s words.  Use your imagination and as mentioned before, this app is more about passing time and getting a laugh than it is about actual usefulness.

Go to Twittervision and see for yourself.  You may get hooked.
