We all had the ‘more information’ questions pop out on our screen when connecting at first.
Twitter wanted us to be more precise by asking us if we wanted to create “geo-tweets,” or Tweets that are tagged with very specific GPS coordinates. The level of specificity unnerves some users who are against giving away such personal and actionable information.
That’s why Twitter decided to bring changes to its gelocation API. The upcoming changes include giving coordinates context, turning them into locations, so when people love a place and want to tweet about it, it will no longer be a latitude and longitude pair but a name. The changes will also give users a variety of privacy options, giving everyone a level that they are comfortable with.
Unfortunately these upgrades will only apply to the US first but it will expand soon. The new Twitter will please eveyone!
