Embedding Twitter into Bing Maps

August 11, 2011

In light of the London riots in the last four days, I wanted to see how people felt on the streets thriught the use of twitter around areas in London that were hit, giving up to date statuses on twitter through the use of Bing Maps, so I googled Twitter on Bing Maps 😉 and this link showed up with Bing.com/community, just Google it yourself. It points to an AJAX application that allows you to set type, size of Bing Map, and the search filter to pinpoint tweet tags, and then creates a HTML embed code for to to copy and pasted into your website, its easy as 1-2-3.

Here’s my Bing map on the London riots tweet tag #riotscleanup in Brixton and Clapham Common area.
