Party Princess - Zoe Griffin mapping her tweets

London's self-styled party princess Zoe Griffin relaunched her website which now has a Google Map which shows her latest tweets.

The map animates through Zoe's latest messages on Twitter. The information windows for each Tweet include forward and back buttons, so it is also possible to manually navigate through the messages.

BTW if you want a similar looking map on your website then try out this code. Replace the mibazaar user id in BOLD with your Twitter user id
