Have you ever wondered where your Twitter followers are located? With a new Web service called TweepsMap, you can map out your followers based on country, state, and city. Here's how:

To start, browse to the TweepsMap Web site, then click on the red "Analyze and Map My Followers" button. If you don't want to tweet your results after the analysis, uncheck the "Tweet my results automatically" box.

When prompted, authorize TweepsMap to use your Twitter account to analyze your followers.

Once the analysis has completed, you'll see a map with little blue Twitter birds all over the world. You can group your followers by country, state, or city.

Clicking on the list view will display a pie graph and a list of locations by percentage.

That's it. After the analysis, you can tweet your stats or share your TweepsMap with others. Keep in mind that not everyone on Twitter has their locations set to exact locations, so those followers won't show up in your list.
