twitter logoMashable reports that Twitter has started rolling out local trending topics. So far just 1% of users have the service.
"We're rolling out local trends to 1 percent of users today, but we'll share more information when it reaches a larger audience hopefully sometime next week. We'll keep you posted when that happens."
Twitter trends have been a feature that is unique to Twitter. Twitter is able to offer the feature which provides a real-time look at what is going on in the world. The local trends will take this feature and apply it to specific cities, towns and regions. Only 15 U.S. cities are supported by local Twitter trends so far but that is likely to change.
