Using twitters API which provides GPS coordinates of tweets and OpenMap, over 6 billion tweets were loaded with their GPS coordinates and the results are stunning.

Looking at the Philippines, you can see the major cities lit up.

Quite interestingly, I found that some of the tweets are located in Manila Bay, which I can only imagine are fishermen or people on cruises. (click on the image to view larger version, each green dot is a tweet)
