Twitter Trends Come to Even More Cities Around the World

Twitter’s locally focused Trends, the list of hot topics that allows Twitter users to keep their twitchy little fingers on the pulse of their communities, is now available in a total of 18 countries and 24 cities around the world.

In an announcement today, a Twitter product manager stated that Twitter’s trending topics, a what’s what of popular and talked-about keywords, will be gaining a more local flavor for 13 new countries and 6 new cities starting today.

Twitter’s been paying a lot of attention to trend-related features lately. Trends became locally oriented for some users in major markets at the beginning of 2010. The company worked on its trending topics algorithm in the spring; with trends becoming ever more relevant and interesting, Twitter was ready to roll out trend-based ads in the summer.

In other globally focused Twitter news, the company will now be displaying tweets from other languages in the user’s native tongue.

According to the company blog, “We we are now using Google Translate to to display Tweet translations in the details pane to give people more access to what people are talking about around the world.”

This is hardly surprising; Twitter has been focusing on multi-language support since last year. Only a handful of users have this feature now; it’ll be rolling out site-wide in the weeks to come.
