Twitter has launched a Geotagging API -- we really wanted to enable users to not only talk about "What's happening?" but also "What's happening right here?" For a while now, we've been watching as users have been trying to geo-tag their tweets through a variety of methods, all of which involve a link to a map service embedded in their Tweet. This talk will delve into how Twitter handles their geocontent including tool suggestions.
As a platform, we've tried to make it easier for our users by making location be omnipresent through our platform, and an inherent (but optional) part of a tweet. We're making the platform be not just about time, but also about place.
