Try it!

Tweets fly in and out… Here is an example.

    Great work and exposure for some interesting technologies! Thanks for your report from the conference the other day as well. Just last night “Wallit” was featured on Gabe Slate’s Start Up section. Slightly similar to “Visible Tweets.” Check it out: http://mashable.com/2012/03/06/wallit-app/
