70 New Locations for Twitter Trends

Twitter launched Twitter Trends in more than 70 new cities and countries, bringing the total number of locations where the service is available to more than 100.

The 140-character service launched Twitter Trends in 41 local markets in January 2010, saying at the time, “The big events that come up around the world will always become a global conversation, but what about the big events that only happen in your world that only matter to those around you? Or the slight differences in the way Californians perceive an event, like Obama’s election victory, versus those São Paulo, Brazil?”

Monday’s additions to the Twitter trends list included Santiago, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, South Africa, and Japan.
