You’ve long been able to include your location with every tweet, but now Twitter is working with Foursquare to make that location information a bit more useful. Twitter currently supports the tagging of general areas, like a city or neighborhood, but with this partnership, tweets will soon be able to include more specific locations, like businesses and landmarks — basically, anything that you can find on Foursquare. It’s not a big change, but it’ll make Twitter’s location feature a bit more interesting, especially if you’re looking for tweets sent from a specific location. Twitter says that the integration is “coming soon,” without listing a specific timeframe.
