How to submit? – Localizing Twitter Conversations

Share on:

Happn.inTwitter is certainly widespread, but some are employing it for specific needs and they are not really that concerned about what is going on in every corner of the world. That is just fine, and this new tool is there to assist them when it comes to placing Twitter conversations in a given context, namely any city they want.

Essentially, the site will let any person choose a city and see the corresponding streams. This way, the user can keep track of events, news, coincidences and funny thing in a direct fashion indeed.

The opening screen provides you with a list of featured cities for you to see what it is all about. So far, more than 53 cities are accounted for, and the respective updates can be received by clicking on the link which is provided below the name of the city on the main page.
