Tips

  • Consider the relevance or safety issues involved with showing your location. Not everyone should show their location in tweets. For those persons working in jobs that require security of information or anonymity, for those under the age of 18 and anyone concerned about someone finding their whereabouts, showing your location is not recommended. In the case of work, check your workplace's guidelines on maintaining a low profile online, especially during working hours.
