Twitter to Become Location Aware

Ainsley Jones

Twitter is developing a new application programming interface (API) that will allow its users to display their latitude and longitude. The soon-to-be-available API will provide a location-based service which users will have the choice of activating and will then be able to switch on or off at any given time, reports


Twitter plans to release the API to developers before it goes live so applications will be available at its official launch. Twitter expects the service to be used by consumers to search for users in a specific area or pick up a feed based on their location, says The Register.
