Twitter is great resource for allowing you to report what's happening now. Thanks to its recently launched Geotagging API, you can also report what's happening here. In this video, you'll get an introduction to the API -- specifically, how Twitter handles their geocontent and what tool suggestions they have for enhancing the experience.

For a while now, Twitter engineers have watched as users tried to geo-tag their tweets through a variety of methods, all of which involved a link to a map service embedded in their tweet. Now that the functionality is an inherent (but optional) part of a tweet, the Twitter platform is not just about time, but also about place. It's a boon to users as well as people who want to develop cool applications with Twitter's Geotagging API.

Presented by Raffi Krikorian, founding partner at Synthesis Studios, this video covers best practices as well as the trickier aspects of working with Twitter Geotagging.
