Geo-tag your tweets with the Twitter 360 iPhone app

iPhone, iPhone apps, Tech Digest news, Twitter

While social networks are certainly helping to make the world a smaller, more communal place, it can still be hard to pinpoint where in the world your contacts are located.

Twitter 360, a new app for the iPhone 3GS, makes use of geotagging to help find where all those messages from around the globe come from. While not a fully fledged Twitter client, Twitter 360 can use you iPhone’s GPS and camera in tandem to direct a user to nearby Twitterers using on screen arrows and markers.

Geotagging of tweets has been done before (the Tweetie app springs to mind). However the augmented reality visuals are a nice touch, especially if they work as accurately as the above demo video suggests.
