Trendsmap - The best thing since Twitter

Trendsmap is by far the most innovative and useful ad on to the Twitter offering that I have seen in the last few months. It allows users to view which topics are trending in certain areas on Google maps. For example, you can have a look at London you can instantly see which topics are trending real time. They are displayed similarly to a tag cloud and if you click through, you can also see which images and videos are trending.

They have developed a tutorial which gives you an overview of the key offering but I'm sure this project will evolve.

The reason that I think it is great is that it is real time, it has very easy usability and it’s simple.

It will be interesting to see what commercial uses this information could have but for now, it’s just really interesting and fun to play with.
