Twitter adds geotagging to its API

Filed as News with no comments

Though a number of mobile Twitter clients have been able to add their own level of geographical information to tweets, Twitter has now officially added geotagging capability to its API (Application Programming Interface).

Pownce Wants You to Show Your Location

Pownce wants you to share your location with Fire Eagle, a Yahoo service that just recently got integrated with Pownce. Fire Eagle is a geotagging service, so your content will be tagged with the location. Give it a go if you will, you’ll need to be logged in to get started though.

On a different note, Pownce gives every pro user who signed up during the first year another 3 months for free, as a thank you. Fair enough, but I still feel that the feature boost for non-paying users is more of an issue, and I won’t be going pro again when my subscription runs out, there is just no incentive to convince me otherwise.
