Twitter News - Geotagging Tweets, New Privacy Policy, And Now in French

Here is quick Twitter update to keeps with some of the new features and policies you should be aware of. Perhaps the most interesting or useful of which is the roll out of the Geotagging API adding location to your tweets which can also be extremely useful in searches. You should read the new privacy policy, though there is nothing that that is likely to surprise you. If French is your native tong, things are going to get easier for you.

Refreshed Privacy Policy

"As part of rolling out geotagging today we've updated our privacy policy to explicitly include geotagging and to describe the public nature of most of what people post to Twitter. We've tried to keep it short and sweet with lots of real life examples so it's simple to read through."

Geotagging API

"In August we announced that we were working on a new API that would provide developers with the ability to geotag tweets. Today, the Geotagging API is officially available.

This release is unique in that it's API-only which means you won't see any changes on, yet. Instead, Twitter applications like Birdfeed, Seesmic Web, Foursquare, Gowalla, Twidroid, Twittelator Pro and others are already supporting this new functionality (go try them out now!) in interesting ways that include geotagging your tweets and displaying the location from where a tweet was posted.
