According to online sources, Micro-blogging website, Twitter Inc. last week rolled out a new feature that will let users see tweets from a specific places of their choice, like a business, sports stadium or music festival.
Foursquare, a search and discovery service mobile app, is powering precise place identification for this new Twitter feature.
Techcrunch reported on Saturday, in exchange, Foursquare gets prominent branding, links back and the ability to improve its own database.
“We’re excited about this integration which has been getting deeper over time. Location can provide important context for any moment, and our location intelligence is best-in-class. We’re proud to support Twitter in the US, Canada, Brazil and many other geographies. Stay tuned for more to come,” Techcrunch quoted Jeff Glueck, CEO at Foursquare.
“When users tag a specific location that is powered by Foursquare, it will be visible in the main Twitter timeline.” Jeff adds.
If users click through to the tweet detail and then click the location, they will be brought to a location feed with a map up top.
There users will see a tab of tweets from that place or city, with the option to check tab dedicated to media such as photo from there, the report added.
The new location feature is available to all iOS users and will go on other platforms later.
