Twitter Launches Location-Specific Tweets


Micro-blogging website Twitter has rolled out a new feature that will let users see tweets from a specific place, like a business, sports stadium or music festival, a media report said.

Foursquare, a search and discovery service mobile app, is powering precise place identification for this new Twitter feature.

In exchange, Foursquare gets prominent branding, links back and the capability to improve its own database.

The new location feature is accessible to all iOS users and will go on other platforms later.
