Discover Tweets, Discover Photos. World-Wide. In Real-Time.
Shmapr is a social discovery tool for finding new people to follow on Twitter or Instagram. It shows you the Top 10 Trending Topics on Twitter and Instagram's most popular hashtagged photos as they are posted.
Tweets are displayed on the ticker sidebar and where they originated from is shown on the map. With a swipe, you can easily reply to a trending topic tweet or post about the trending topic yourself.
Like tweets, Instagram photos are also shown in the ticker sidebar and the origin is plotted on the map as well. With the very intuitive interface, it's easy to comment on a photo or mark it as your favorite.
