More tweets visualizations

For quite some time now I have been finding visualizations cool. There is a whole list of blogs and web sites dedicated to this rather obscure area of - computing? Web 2.0? It's an Edward Tufte-meets-open source type of thing... and even (SF) author Bruce Sterling is in on the game. And now, even IBM: they too are visualizing tweets (real-time Internet seems to be the in thing now). Still unsure about the usefulness of it all, but it makes for nice mind-map-like charting.
