Twittaround – Be mindful of what you say

Giz posted info on a new app called Twittaround that blends your physical space with Twitter.  In other words, by aiming your phone in any direction, you will see tweets geo-located from your position.  Right now this is only for the iPhone 3G S and most likely will not be approved by Apple.  I am not seeing any reason why this cannot be ported to Android or WebOS (if we can get the darn SDK).  I like the idea of blending the social online map to that of the space we currently live, though a part of me keeps playing that one scene from the movie The Strangers where the lead female character ask why the killers are doing this and they replied, “Because you were home.” Only now it will be “Because you tweeted.”
