This summer we started letting users add a place to a Tweet. Since then
we’ve seen that people want to tweet about a variety of places, from
businesses to parks to neighborhoods.
We have been working with a number of partners to grow our data set of
places to make it easier for you to build great Twitter experiences around
places, and offer more place choices to users. These partnerships serve as a
foundation for a number of exciting features we have planned to help users
find what’s new in their area and around the world.
To make it easy for you to use the large data set, we’re using an index that
combines the IDs across different partners into one. This means you can use
the IDs from your preferred partner’s dataset when using Twitter Search to
find Tweets about a specific place.
Thanks to our partners: A&E Television Networks and History, Apontador,
CityGrid Media, DotMenu/Allmenus, Gowalla, Infogroup, Localeze, Maponics,
OpenTable, TomTom, Wcities, Yellow Pages Group (Canada), and Zagat.
Information on how to find Tweets about places and the list of supported
partners can be found on our Developer Resources Site:
