If you want to tweet with location information, you can click on the location icon displayed at the time of the tweet and click 'Enable' to set the location information you want to associate.


Location information function 2009 has been introduced initially, read a tweet related to a specific location by attaching string tweets and location information, and is likely to get the events and information of the disaster that occurred in specific areas such as concert thinking It was done . However, in fact, many users prefer to use hashtags over location information, and location information has not been used as originally expected.

Maintaining low-demand location information services may cause privacy problems, such as users who would otherwise not want to associate location information accidentally embed location information in their tweets. So Twitter seems to have decided to end accurate location association support.

In addition, embedding of location information will be available if you take photos through the Twitter application in the future, and location information addition using an external service such as Foursquare or Yelp will continue to be possible.
