If I were working on an ethnographic study on the Global Twitter Tribe, I would start here with Twitter Earth...

If you have some inexplicable fascination of Twitter, the much beloved or maligned or questioned (depending on you hang out with...) but can't-be-ignored, new kid on the block, by my troth! you definitely should check out Twitter Earth...
Twitter Earth is basically a 3D presentation of Twittervision, which shows every tweet, live, and where it comes from, visually. You just need to trust me and click on the link here... words failed me... which they often do... 
Whenever I clicked on Twitterearth, I found myself thinking, "Wow, I could really sit here and watch this thing all day." Meaning, instead of watching the goldfish swimming on the Aquarium screen saver, I would rather watch Tweets around the globe live in action.
Even more wishful thinking would be to watch this thing on a JumboTron...  Wouldn't it be cool to have this app running non-stop on the giant screen at Times Square?!  
p.s. To those who wonder when I will stop yapping about Twitter "Enough Already!" tomorrow, I shall yap about... t-shirts!!!
