Twitter goes local. And paves the way for geotargeted ads.

Twitter may already be everywhere, but it's about to know where you are. The microblogging service announced today a new feature that will make it location aware for users. 

Twitter is developing an API that will allow third-party platforms like Tweetdeck and Tweetie to indentify users' latitude and longitude. Eventually it will be an opt-in option on Twitter itself. And that means local advertising cannot be far off.
