When you send a tweet, you might have noticed it's possible to share your location. The option has been available online and in most Twitter apps for several years.
Right now, this feature seems to serve little purpose. It's a great way for people to find out exactly where you are when you tweet, but it doesn't do much more than that.
According to a new report from The Wall Street Journal, Twitter aims to give more meaning to its location feature. The social media company is experimenting with a new feature called "Nearby" that shows tweets being sent out near you.
