It's about damn time. Someone finally created an AR twitter app with geo-tagging. With the new Twitter 360 app, people with the iPhone 3GS will be able to see a virtual stream of tweets, displayed over where the tweeter is actually positioned. Because it relies on the built-in compass, this app is only compatible with the iPhone 3GS.

TheNextWeb states that this is the first AR Twitter app to use the geo-tagging feature. This allows different utilities like "Locate my Friends", which lets you track the position of all of your nearby friends. Whenever a certain person is selected, you'll be given an arrow showing the direction and the distance of that friend. The distance updates in real time.

Yes, before you ask, there is a way to go "invisible". To try the $2.99 app, follow this link.
