Virtual word controlled by tweets

tweet-land.jpg

A new online game currently seeking funding on Kickstarter aims to create a virtual world from your tweets.

Tweetland, which currently has two games in production, Love City and a racing game called Route 140, aims to use tweets to make things happen in the gaming environment, so if someone tweets about zombies, they'll appear in the game! However, it's not just any old tweets that appear within Tweetland, it's been specially created to pick up mentions of things like cars, shooting stars, zombies and fireflies.

It's a really clever idea to use tweets and social networking updates to inform what happens elsewhere. However, judging from some of the rubbish people tweet about, we're glad that not everything is pulled into Tweetland!
