You can now view Twitters in 3D with twitterearth. Genexis Consulting is using Live Maps to make this possible. Inspired by the awesome Twittervision, this mashup zooms the viewer around a 3D globe in the browser.

It’s great timing for this release. Until now only IE browsers on Windows machines could view Live’s 3D imagery. As of today, Firefox browsers also get the enhanced data. For those of us on Macs the VE team made this video:

Erik Jorgensen, Live Map General Manager, will be speaking at Where 2.0. Also at Where, John Curlander will be reprising his excellent ETech talk The Making of Virtual Earth.
