Hi Everyone,

Since we launched GeoAPI a little over a month ago, we've seen
hundreds of developers sign up and a long list of powerful and
creative uses of geo information. We are happy to announce today that
we have been acquired by Twitter and will be integrating GeoAPI into
the Twitter API. We are very excited to be joining forces with
Twitter, as we believe that this will strengthen our community and
open support for geo-enabled applications.

You can read about it on the GeoAPI Blog (http://geoapi.blogspot.com/)
and Twitter Blog (http://blog.twitter.com/).

We wanted to give everyone a heads up on the good news. While we are
still figuring out how to integrate GeoAPI into Twitter, the current
GeoAPI will keep running. We will make sure to solicit everyone's
feedback as we figure out how the combined API(s) will evolve. Stay
tuned!

Hi Royce,

Thanks - we're looking forward to working with the folks at Twitter.

We have no plans to retire the current GeoAPI, but as my post says,
the integration plan is still being figured out. We'll definitely be
requesting input from the GeoAPI and Twitter developer communities, so
it'll be great to get input from everyone as we go through the
process.
