Micro-blogging website Twitter has rolled out a new feature that will let users see tweets from a specific place, like a business, sports stadium or music festival, a media report said.

Foursquare, a search and discovery service mobile app, is powering precise place identification for this new Twitter feature.

In exchange, Foursquare gets prominent branding, links back and the ability to improve its own database, technology website Techcrunch.com reported on Saturday.

The new location feature is available to all iOS users and will go on other platforms later.

“We're excited about this integration which has been getting deeper over time. Location can provide important context for any moment, and our location intelligence is best-in-class. We're proud to support Twitter in the US, Canada, Brazil and many other geographies. Stay tuned for more to come,” Techcrunch.com quoted Jeff Glueck, CEO, Foursquare, as saying.

When users tag a specific location (powered by Foursquare), it will be visible in the main Twitter timeline.

If users click through to the tweet detail and then click the location, they will be brought to a location feed with a map up top.

There users will see a tab of tweets from that place or city, with the option to check tab dedicated to media such as photo from there, the report added.
