What is Geotagging and its FAQ's

What is Geotagging?
Twitter's Geotagging feature allows users who opt-in to the service to selectively Geotag their tweets with their exact location and provide more context to users about their surroundings. This great new functionality allows you to join into a local conversation and annotate the world around you as you travel from one place to another.

It is important to note that this functionality is off by default. You will need to explicitly opt-in to use the functionality. Once you have done that, any app that you use will be able to Geotag your tweet with your exact location. We require application developers to be upfront and obvious about when they are Geotagging an update. If you ever find that an application is doing it without notifying you, please let us know.
