Twitter has announced an update to its Explore tab, making Tweets more relevant to your location. Therefore, changing your location doesn’t just affect Trends anymore.
Up until now, only Trends had content closely related to your location, but Twitter is changing this with a new update to Explore. Changing your location in the Explore tab will make all Tweets within it more specific and relevant to your location.
This means exactly what you think it does. When you open the Explore tab and scroll, everything you see there (including topic listings, what’s happening, and trends) will be localized. Listings will change to bring regional coverage depending on the location you choose.
In its announcement of the change, Twitter suggests it’s doing this to help users be able to choose the news they want to view, depending on a specific location.
As the announcement reads: “Now more than ever, it’s vital to see what’s happening anywhere in the world, from wherever.”
As part of the change, Twitter also says it removed the Worldwide Trends view and is working on improving Explore to show users “more relevant content for the different locations” that they choose.
How to Change your Location on Twitter
- Tap on the gear icon on the top right-hand corner of the app in Explore.
- This will bring up Explore settings – uncheck the “Show content in this location” box.
- Tap on Explore locations and pick your location.
This way, you can find out exactly what is trending in any location across the globe.
