“Tell me you have seen the Google Maps/Twitter mash up of the American Super Tuesday voters.. it’s amazing! The pointer is flying all over the world, from Spain to England, and all through the various parts of America.”
“Enthralled by Twitter and Google Maps super mashup. I could be entertained for hours”
