The fruits of Twitter s partnership with Foursquare are finally rolling out on the platform in the shape of precise location feeds.
Unlike hashtags, which can be used by anyone, specific location tags can help you identify who is actually at an event you care about.
Twitter announced its partnership with Foursquare in March, and this is the first we ve heard of it since.
These places are sourced from Foursquare.
The move could boost advertising on the platform, allowing brands to tag their promotional tweets with locations, and tap into events where their products are being consumed by general users.
Additionally, it could provide accurate data for Twitter s Moments news feed.
