Twitter In 3D
Minsh is a unique site that visualizes Twitter users as fish in a 3-dimensional, underwater world. Schools of fish gather based on their tweets. The site is in Alpha now with the Alpha 2 version to be released on July 13, 2009.
Richard Banks explains:
The concept behind the virtual world is that the social behaviour of fish will represent what people are talking about online. In the world of Minsh, people writing about a given subject find themselves swimming in the same school. When a person updates his or her Twitter status, the fish swims away to join people with similar thoughts on their minds.
