Toronto is Trending

Nice initiative by the Toronto tourist board to promote the Canadian city through the eyes, tweets and check-ins of the people who are ‘living the city’. 

The website uses live Twitter updates and Foursquare check-ins to present an interactive view of the metropolis at so-called street level. Laid over a Google satellite map and via live video feeds of select venues, the idea is to show off Toronto as a ‘happening place’ and to give tourists an idea of what the locals are up to. If users want to get involved and add tips to the site, they can simply tweet or check in by using the hashtag #torontotrending.

The website is at http://trending.seetorontonow.com/
