Inspiration

We realized that some people may not know how accessible their location when they have geo tags on. Perhaps, they only think people can access the city they were in but if your account is public on twitter people can actually pin point your longitude and latitude.

What it does

Maps out where you tweeted if you have geo tags on.

How we built it

Twitter API allows us to access the timeline of each user and each tweet which shows the coordinates of the location where the tweet was sent.

What we learned
