There are two pipes to choose from, one for your Twitter followers and one for your Twitter friends. The first one requires your Twitter password (and sends it over an unencrypted connection) so it might be best to try the one for your friends first.
Click the link and enter your Twitter username. Click “Run pipe” and wait a few seconds...

And here are the finished results:
Feed viewers, to see the map, you’ll need to click through to the article.
Pretty damn cool!
Stop the clock! Was that under five minutes?
