Simply go to their website and search for a tweet by hashtag (e.g. #LondonOlympics) or keyword (search field is in the top right corner).

You will get a visualizaiton of tweets, grouped by timezone. Scroll up with your mouse-wheel to go west (Europe->US) or scroll down to go east (US->Europe). Click on a timezone to view the latest  tweets that originated from that geographical timezone.

You can view the number of tweets from each timezone and thereby see the region from which a particular tweet is originating the most. To search for a new tweet, you don’t have to leave the page. Simply enter the keyword/hashtag in to the search field at the top right corner
