Using location services on mobile devices

Enabling location services through Twitter's official apps allows Twitter to periodically determine your location. This allows us to provide, develop, and improve a variety of our services, including but not limited to:
  • Showing your followers the location you are Tweeting from as part of your Tweet.
  • Delivery of location-specific trends.
  • Delivery of content, including Tweets and advertising, that is tailored to your location.

How to enable/disable location services on Twitter for iOS:

    1. Go to your device's Settings app and select Privacy.
    2. Tap Location Services.
    3. Tap the on/off switch for the Twitter app.

    How to enable/disable location services on Twitter for Android:
