Twitter local trends comes to Baltimore
I signed on to Twitter this morning to discover that I now had access to its latest feature: local trends.
For those who maybe aren't so familiar with Twitter.com, one of its tools for highlighting what people are talking about is trending topics.
That feature has been only available from a worldwide perspective (though you could figure out tweets around you by using Twitter's specific search tool.)
But Twitter users should be seeing a local version of trends, meaning now we'll see results from what Tweeters in Baltimore (or several other cities) are talking most about.
In Baltimore this morning, these are the top topics (left). Apparently, there're a lot of people in Charm City excited about their IRS tax refund check. Heck, so am I!
