Twitter may offer Places function to businesses

Published on .

San Francisco—Twitter says it is considering altering its Twitter Places location-tagging function for use by businesses.

As first reported by Mashable, Twitter is trying out a variety of features to allow businesses to “claim a place” in the same manner individuals have been able to do since earlier this year. Viewers then would be able to click a location to see recent tweets referencing it.

Twitter confirmed its intent with this statement: “We’re experimenting with a variety of features. Allowing businesses to claim a place is a natural thing to consider for the future.” Facebook, Foursquare and Gowalla currently offer geo-location features.
