Twitter Trending Wins Regional Topics

This week Twitter has enabled a new feature that allows you to separate your trending topics – or “hot topics” in a Freestyle translation – by countries and cities.

Previously the system only showed the subjects most talked about by people around the world, without distinction, which often meant that some interesting issues for Brazilian sailors, for example, had excessive emphasis on service microblog. Now, in addition to world TT, you can track the most talked about issues in Mexico, Brazil, United Kingdom, Canada, USA and Ireland.

Already Atlanta, Dallas, New York, Seattle, Baltimore, Houston, Philadelphia, Boston, London, San Antonio, Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and São Paulo São Paulo are the first cities that also have their own filters, which “soon” should get to other locations.

To enable local trending topics, you must be logged into Twitter page.
