Twitter Adds Trends For 100 More CitiesBy: Chris Crum - December 5, 2012
Twitter announced today that it has added Trends for 100 more cities around the world. Among them are Istanbul, Frankfurt, Guadalajara and Incheon. That puts the total number of locations at over 200.
You can see the Trends for all the different locations by simply clicking “Change” in the Trends section.
“People around the world turn to Twitter to talk about a range of topics – from football to giving thanks to sharing information and resources during natural disasters and emergencies,” says Twitter search and relevance engineer Kostas Tsioutsiouliklis. “This is why Twitter uniquely captures the pulse of the planet, and the pulse of your city: by surfacing the topics that people care about.”
Meanwhile, Google remains without a realtime search feature, forcing news-seekers looking for up-to-the-second updates to go elsewhere (like Twitter).
Twitter says it plans on adding more locations for Trends.
