Visualize your Twitter Timeline with jQuery and SIMILE

Since my last post I wondering if there was a better way to visualize my tweets. The Word Cloud was a nice feature, but I wanted more. I thought about using the Google Annotated Time Line chart, but it didn’t quite give me what I was looking for. Well, it turns out there is a really cool JavaScript plug-in called Simile Timeline that provides the functionality I was looking for.

So, I threw the following together to display my tweets. After completing it, I realized how much I actually tweet! A lot of exciting stuff was going on after being on vacation, having PDC 2009 going on, and watching the jQuery Summit.
