Twitter gets ready to add geolocation features
Before anyone gets too worked up, let me point out that allowing apps to use your location will be strictly opt-in, meaning it's off by default. One of the advantages Twitter foresees with this location API is the ability to read local tweets. Most people agree that Twitter's public timeline is useless, but I would definitely read a location-aware local timeline. No word on when the new service will be ready, but it will roll out to developers well before it hits the Twitter website, so there should be time for your favorite Twitter app to get ready.
