Twitter has expanded its Trends service to 50 new locations worldwide, including a number of cities across Asia, Europe, the Middle East and beyond.

Twitter last bumped up Trends back in April 2013, when it added 160 new places worldwide. The company says it is working to add “even more locations in the future.”
