Twitcaps: Watching the World
A new, visual view of all the pictures posted by Twitter users around the world. See an image you like? Re-tweet to your friends, or capture the image and save it for later. As the images are sourced from an unfiltered public view, they may be NSFW.

I just launched the Beta and am looking for feedback. Display anomalies and functional bugs are at the top of my list, but I'd also love to hear from anybody with new ideas for functionality. How can I make this application better?

This is great. I linked to it on my site.

Thanks for the link, wax! I hope to grow the site in a data-centric way, so that you can obtain more specific, directed image feeds (#hashtags, collections of users, etc.) and get some interesting peeks into the image posting habits of Twitter users.

I've been looking at some feedback I've received through other channels and it seems like the biggest obstacle I'm going to face is the fact that many people are (understandably) unwilling to give up their Twitter user/pass despite assurances that they are not persisted.

I'll take a hard look at oAuth, but then I'm unsure how I'll integrate with Twitpic (or any other image service).
