Twitter adds 70 new locations to Trends

Twitter adds 70 new locations to Trends

Twitter today added another 70 locations to Local Trends, a subset of the service’s trend tracking service that gives users a view of what’s popular in their area at the time. Twitter doesn’t provide a list of the new locations, but you can go and find out if yours is one of them by clicking ‘change’ next to the word Worldwide in the Trends section of your Twitter sidebar, as seen below.

I assume that Twitter waited all this time to add to the previously meager 30 locations because it has a criteria for region-specific activity before it’s willing to have people replace Worldwide trends. It’ll be interesting to see if we have to wait as long for the next batch — in Australia, for instance, only Sydney is represented while Melbourne has seemingly just as many active users.
