Your Tweets Geo-Located Make A Poignant Story

The first tweet says, “Well, I just got laid off.” Using geo-location, we can pin-point the exact location (more of less) where that was tweeted and, in this case, it turns out to be at the corner of W. Randolph Street and N. La Salle Street. The picture of that street intersection in itself does not amount to much, but pair it with the tweet, and they together suddenly becomes a poignant testimony of an intimate event. There are lots more of this type of tweets and associated images, some funny, one quite sad, but all making a strong statement.
