Twitter to Become Location Aware

Twitter is in the works to allow users to manually fill out a location field when editing or creating their profile. According the the Twitter Blog this field can have anything in it and would not be very reliable. The effort is to allow users to read tweets from people near their location. The blog also mentions releasing geolocation to developers.

Read more at the Twitter Blog.

Twitter: it's like Facebook, only worse.

Let the stalking begin. I don't see to many people using this for the general public to know where there at off of every tweet that they post.

Re: Twitter to Become Location Aware

I am not in favor of this and though I do not Twitter, it would be definite that the feature would not be enabled.
