Twitter buys geo-firm

We know where, just need a why

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Twitter has bought Mixer Labs - the makers of GeoAPI - a tool kit for developers of geographically-aware applications.

The over-hyped micro-blogging firm said: "When current location is added to tweets, new and valuable services emerge — everything from breaking news to finding friends or local businesses can be dramatically enhanced."

The example used was a tweet saying "Earthquake!". This would be a lot more useful and informative if it came with some information about where the bleeding earthquake was.

The idea is to integrate the GeoAPI into Twitter's API. Mixer Labs will work from Twitter's San Francisco, Folsom Street HQ. ®
