Judging by the number of new followers we have, it appears that this has been the week that Twitter finally hit the mainstream, so we thought we’d post another roundup of the best Street View sights we’ve posted to the Official Google Sightseeing Twitter feed.
- The claimed “world’s smallest city block” looks more like a traffic island to me (More info)
- The Google car appears to be stopped between two closed level crossings! Pan around to see for yourself.
- Ghostriding the whip?
- Driver narrowly fails to add “cow” to list of things run over by Google.
- An Easter Island Moai in Tucson, AZ.
- Last week Google added the ocean floor to Earth and Maps, including some writing (Can anyone find any other sea oddities?)
Oh dear, this would appear to be a man on the toilet! OMFG THIS GUY IS MASSIVE!
- Click North from here and you will be teleported into another Street View car that is following behind.
Aiiiee! It’s the giant of Texas!
- A drunken LA resident still sleeping it off on her front lawn the next morning.
- In Washington, it’s less about sleeping it off, and more about… having a nap?
- Crazy writing on a street corner; “Throbbing 2 Breathings All Sounds by Demon”. Uh, yeahhh. Nutjob.
- Joey Tribbiani might have been thankful for this breeze.
- Train carriage propped on stilts and turned into a bar. But how do you get in?
- Geyser erupting at Yellowstone.
- The Google Car has a police escort to drive down this pedestrianised street.
- It’s a Douglas DC-3 plane. Covered in Cookies. Mmm, Cookies…
Update: It appears several of these have been deleted by Google since we originally posted them, which is just all the more reason to stay abreast of the very latest findings by subscribing to our Twitter feed!
Or, for those of you who want to avoid the direct messaging that accompanies our Street View posts on Twitter, I’ve created an experimental RSS feed with Yahoo pipes that will return all our Twitter posts combined with the posts from the main site. Please bear in mind that although I’ve tried to filter out duplicates and direct message chatter, it’s not perfect. However we will be soon incorporating our two feeds together properly.
