Yes, that really was a tweet you saw on my screen. Each of the tweets had one thing in common – my last name. I had fun watching them assemble themselves on my screen.

Using Visible Tweets, you can choose a keyword to follow on Twitter. The service then locates tweets that have that keyword in them somewhere, and assembles them on your screen.

Visible Tweets is a visualization of Twitter messages designed to be shown in public places. You can choose to follow them on Twitter to keep up with the latest developments. You can also send them an @tweet, letting them know of ideas of feedback that you may have for them.

This would make a great screensaver, by the way. Sadly, it’s not one. Hint, hint!! It’s interesting watching the letters pop in, and see the animations ebb and flow.
