I just read today that Twitter's traffic grew over 1,100% from Last Year. Additionally, there has been some talk about Twitter rolling out some new features like "geolocation API" and "Lists."
Personally, i think Twitter is a great tool for aggregating all the news, information, and people I am interested in following... BUT if you follow more than a few dozen "people," your main page can seem overwhelming and distracting. For this reason, I am excited to see the "Lists" feature. All too often I find myself wishing for a way to categorize my different feeds by topic. For example, have a group for sports tweets separate from a group from stock market tweets.
The new "geolocation API" will now allow users to follow tweets by location. This can prove to be a powerful way for local businesses to broadcast to a local audience.
What do you think of these new features and how well will they be received by individual twitter users and also business owners?
Are there any other features you would like to see on Twitter?
