Twitter Updates Its Status With Location Tool
Today Twitter unveiled a new feature that allows users to automatically share their location with their Tweets. Users need to opt into the service via their accounts and can turn it off at any time. Twitter explained how it will work on mobile phones in a recent blog post. "For each Tweet, we will publicly display whatever location information you've elected to share. For example, if you update from Twitter Mobile and have specified that a particular Tweet should show your exact location, these coordinates can be seen on Twitter.com, Twitter mobile, and in third-party applications." Twitter said that it will also work with mobile apps that support location sharing. Twitter users wishing to share their location from their desktop will need to use Chrome or Firefox 3.5. Internet Explorer users (and versions of Firefox older than 3.5) will need to download and install Google Gears to make it work.
