Map Your Twitter Followers-Data Visualization of Your Twitter Followers

I came across a tweet the other day.  There is a FREE website called Map My Followers- site can access and map upto 1000 followers at a time and place them geographically on a world map. In addition, by clicking on each individual map marker reveals the short bio about each follower.  Try it yourself.  Click on one of the map markers.  While this seems brand new, location based marketing is in the incipient stages of development. 
Data visualization enhances location based targeting.  I can see geot argeting by brick and mortar establishments.  Retailers can even use it for consideration of a physical location.
