Twitter starts rolling out 'Where are You?'

With Facebook all set to unveil Geo-location to their status updates in April, Twitter has gone ahead and started rolling out their new feature. This feature has already started rolling out to a number of users.

How this works is when you login to your account there is a prompt asking you to 'Tweet Your Location' you can either choose 'Turn Location On' or choose 'Not Now'.

If you choose to turn your location on Twitter will use Google gears to find your location and a small pin icon will appear beside your Tweet to tell other users your location.

The good thing is users aren't forced into this service and it is only an opt-in.
