Here’s the deal… Soon, you will be able to embed our Twitter Maps functionality into your own web site. This means you can be cool by having a Bing Map on your web site, blog, favorite social networking site with the Tweets you care about – and its free. Note, to use this service you need to be zoomed out to your area of interest and tweets you’re looking for need to be geolocated. Four steps are needed: (via Bing Community Blog)
- Select the map location either fixed (centered on a specific point) or anywhere (moves the map as the Tweets come in).
- Specify the dimensions of your map (height and width).
- Add search filters. These will be carried into the embed form if you’ve specified them to filter only tweets that meet your search criteria.
- Copy/paste HTML into your web page.
