How does TweetJourney work?
You need to "Enable geotagging" under "Settings" in your Twitter account for TweetJourney to work.
TweetJourney scans the last 100 tweets in the the selected account.
Out of these 100 tweets we will only display and work with geotagged tweets.
From the generated list you can remove any tweet that you don't want to be part of your route.
When done you click "Let's go - show journey" and a map is created for you.
Below the map you will find a linke to your route/journey.
Copy the link or use the Facebook and/or Twitter links to share it with your friends.
Can I pre register a journey for real-time updates?
You need to have created at least one journey based on old tweets on this site to make this work.
When you are ready to start your new journey send a geotagged tweets including the hashtag #tjs.
The tweet will be used as the title of your journey. In a couple of minutes you will get a tweet with a link to your new journey.
You can now share this journey with friends and family so they can follow you as you go along.
To add tweets to your journey just add #tj to a tweet and it will be added.
Can I add my journey to my homepage?
Yes, add mini after the domain name (http://tweetjourney.com/) and you will get a clean version which you can link to from your homepage.
