Another global service has gone local. This time it’s Twitter Trends.
Earlier this week Twitter announced that Twitter Trends has gone local and it’s been rolled out to everyone. Everyone, that is, within one of several major metropolitan areas. If you’re not in one of those areas then you see a message promising that they’re working on it.
This is good new. Facebook has had the ability for local people to network with each other for quite a while now. Twitter has had the ability as well, but by and large it is seen as a global mass communication tool. It most certainly has local applications and local small businesses in need of such a tool can now gain easier access to local information to help them in their communications. Count this as a thumbs up.
