Twitter Mashup Idea – please steal

Sorry to be posting about twitter so soon but I am working my brain around scaling issues and possibilities. Its the week of twitter and some issues have popped up.

In looking to see if anyone has tried my idea I went over to the twitter fan wiki and found a Google Maps / Twitter mashup, but it seems to only take the location in your profile, I am only seeing 3 people in Washington State.

What I want is the ability to send a txt and set your location that way. Also it would be fun to follow a geographic region,like a 10 mile radius around your zip code. Or follow everyone that is at an event, even if you are not there (SXSW). Or ignore a geo region (Leave SXSW).

This feature will come to pass. the question is where and who. Groups are coming to twitter according to Ev via Scoble.

  1. Found your Twitter post about Twitter and Jott mashup. I did some google searching after writing this post about mashing up Twitter and Jott. I had to use a third party program to do it, but it works flawlessly.
