Twitterverse Screensaver

Mac OS X Tip: Twitterverse Screensaver Visualizes Your Twitter Activity
F7A847A8-9968-4BE2-9B3A-A7BEF81585CB.jpgAn adventurous Flickr user dug up a file in Leopard’s example developer documents called Twitterverse, a screensaver that displays your Twitter world in a circle of thumbnailed activity. To use Twitterverse, find the file (a quick Spotlight search for Twitterverse should do the trick), open your Desktop & Screen Saver preference pane, and then simply drag the Twitterverse.qtz file into the preview window of the Screen Saver preference pane.

To get it downloading your friends’ tweets, click the Options button, enter your username and password, and try it out. I had trouble seeing results (just a blank screen), but if you have more luck, the screensaver is eye-tastic!
