Twitter has announced that it is localising its trends feature to over 100 new cities across the globe.

These include the likes of Istanbul, Frankfurt, Guadalajara and Incheon, the company noted on its blog page, with the UK getting 12 cities incorporated including Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast, London, Liverpool, Sheffield, Bristol and Nottingham.

That means folks in all these cities will be able to sift and find the breaking, trending news in their particular neck of the woods – you can change the location of trending content via the Change button in the Trends section.

In total, there are now some 200 cities across the globe which can have trending topics tailored to their locality.

Twitter promises that support for more locations is on the way, too.

The social network stated: “People around the world turn to Twitter to talk about a range of topics – from football to giving thanks to sharing information and resources during natural disasters and emergencies.”

“This is why Twitter uniquely captures the pulse of the planet, and the pulse of your city: by surfacing the topics that people care about. We’ll continue to add Trends locations so that it’s easy for more people to quickly see what others are talking about, globally and locally.”
