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.
