When somebody says something particularly nice about our service, I favorite their tweet. In two years I collected long list of enthusiastic responses from many different countries.
I figured it would be fun to share those tweets with you. We already have the coordinates of all our followers, so it would be easy to plot them on a map, right?
Well... not quite. I wanted it to look like this dynamic overview of Wikipedia updates. I couldn't get it to work myself, but thanks to excellent webdevelopers Cliff Odijk and Jeffrey Cafferata (@jcidnl) we got a wonderful map of Twisst's favorites:
It's exciting to see people all over the globe having fun by watching ISS, don't you think? The map will soon be added to the homepage. There's always room for improvement of course: for instance it would be nice if the map would be a little darker, since everyone is watching ISS in twilight :-)
If you have any other ideas or suggestions, post them below! Oh and feel free to tell us about your ISS/Twisst experiences, where ever you are - your tweet might end up on this map!

P.s. Like maps as much as I do? Back in 2009 I made this map, on which I plotted all our followers at that time.
