Twitter to Become Location Aware

Article Comments  5  

Aug 21, 2009, 10:53 AM   by Eric M. Zeman   @phonescooper

Microblogging service Twitter recently announced that it is going to provide developers with location APIs, which they can use in their Twitter applications. The APIs will allow users to attach location information (latitude and longitude) to each tweet that users send. Location awareness will first be available via third-party Twitter applications such as TweetDeck, and later directly on Twitter.com and the mobile version of Twitter. Twitter believes this could open up a new way to share and read tweets. For example, users can more easily choose to read the tweets of those who are in their immediate vicinity. Users will need to opt-in to the service, and Twitter says that location data will not be stored for an indefinite period. Developers will receive a preview of the feature soon, though Twitter didn't say exactly when it will become fully available.

3rd Party Already Has It

Ummm...

WOW!

UberTwitter on BlackBerry, and iPhone apps already have had this feature for MONTHS, if not a year already.

Announcing it now is like saying.. "Hey everyone, man has walked on the moon" ... Yeah, a little late already!
