Twitter today said it has partnered with Foursquare so users can tag specific locations in Tweets. Twitter already lets users to tag their location from its mobile apps, but the location is defined loosely across a broad area, like a neighborhood or town. With Foursquare, people will be able to tag more specific places, such as businesses, restaurants, or other venues. The place details will be added to Tweets, and users will be able to access the details from their timeline. Twitter didn't say exactly when the feature will be made available.

I'm surprised Foursquare hasn't thrown in the towel already. When they split the checkin functionality off into Swarm and changed the system all around, they caused thousands of long-time users and superusers to abandon the service altogether. So many parts of their site/app are full of bugs and never get fixed. I don't know how they manage to stay afloat.
