Twitter adding more advanced location like Foursquare and Gowalla

June 15, 2010

Twitter announced that will be adding location or places as they call it to twitter.

When you first here about it you think that this will kill foursquare and gowalla, but if you read twitter’s blog you will see that apart from letting people tag specific places they will also allow apps like gowalla’s and foursquare linked to twitter (the big bro) post also specific locations.

In addition to this twitter will allow external apps to access places information through an improved API.

Will this kill Gowalla and Foursquare?

Well they both have a niche: games, major, stuff you leave, photos, tips, so … I don’t think so. It will just make twitter better.Also don’t forget about Google Places:
