Pingwire shows live stream of Twitpic photos

Pingwire pulls in the latest (and sometimes greatest) photos from TwitPic into a stream of ever-evolving thumbnails.


Here's a fun way to see new photos users are uploading to Twitter. Called Pingwire, this new tool grabs the latest photos from TwitPic and displays them in a never-ending stream of thumbnails.

If you find anything you like, you just click on it and it will take you to the source page on TwitPic where all the comments, view count, and original Tweet are stored.

TwitPic has its own recent uploads section made up of thumbnails, along with a moving map of recent photos, however I found Pingwire's simplistic stream more fun to let run in the background.

There are a few things to look out for though. For one you can't pause the stream, so if you want to click on any thumbnail to see more detail you have to be quick with your mouse. There's also no filter for adultish content, so you may see things pop up that you wouldn't want to see at work. Or ever.

For basic lighting needs, this bulb looks like a solid pick, but its dimming performance leaves a lot to be desired.
