The tools, utilities, and applications being developed around various social networking platforms is truly amazing. Twitter is a great system for sending out your random thoughts or sometimes even useful information to the world, but it's becoming a massive collection of word snippets that can be analyzed by content, time, and more impressively, location.

Trendsmap is a site you must see to get an idea of just how powerful and accessible this information is. It's a simple tool that maps out the most commonly tweeted words and overlays it on a map of the world. Find your section of the globe and see what the most popular topics are around your area.

As a side note to your iPhone users, there is an app called "TwitterTrend" which gives you stats on hot topics, but without the map.
