+I decided to see what I could do with Node.js today. I've never used it before, but understood the concept of it. It was really nice to work with, I didn't tear my hair out too much, and after a few hours learning some really basic Socket.IO stuff by making a web chat room, I tried this.
+This Twittery-Nodey-Sockety-sort-of-thing uses [ntwitter]( to stream tweets from the Twitter Streaming API, and pipes them through to clients with [Socket.IO]( It all runs quite nicely on [Heroku](
+It currently attempts to stream *all* tweets that have coordinates in them, and the page displays the latest 100 at any given time, removing them as the queue fills up. Each marker has a tooltip that displays the tweet text.
