Twitter Stalking with Bing Maps … Recontastic

So this is pretty old news as I think it was first announced on the Interwebs in mid to late 2010 and I could have swarn I blogged about it, but apparently not, perhaps it was just a tweet, who knows.

Anyway, in the Maltego class I have been attending this week we were talking about geolocation of twitter users in certain areas and I was talking about the Bing Twitter Maps thang. So I thought as a point of reference I would do a quick blog post for those that want to easily find and use this in the future.

So why can this be handy? Well mainly if you are tasked with carrying out recon on a specific business, you will of course easily identify the location of their offices, from here you can use this to identify people tweeting (with geolocation enabled) and you can then correlate this back to actual employees with active twitter accounts. This can be a valuable tool depending on your scope.

To get a better idea for yourself check out the Bing Maps Twitter App here. All being well there should be an embedded option below.
