Putting Tweets on the Map

Twitter is now working on providing geolocation tracking for users who want it, which would attach location information to each Tweet they post. At first, the company plans to release a preview of its new API to external developers. According to BusinessWeek, "developers can expect to soon see a "Geolocation Best Practices" guide from Twitter that will address key geolocation API topics like security and privacy."

Once the geolocation feature is fully implemented, users will have to opt-in in order to use it.
