Improving Twitter’s Location Field
“You know, wouldn’t it make more sense if Twitter made geo-coordinates as the Location field a hyperlink to Google Maps?” - @KuraFire
And he’s right. Most twitter clients for mobile devices (including Twitterific for the iPhone, my Twitter client of choice) set your location to your current coordinates, because that’s what the API for the internal GPS returns. But it’s hardly helpful. I’m currently at 47.270721, 11.409668 but without the Google Maps link noone would know where those coordinates are.
You need the Greasemonkey extension for Firefox or another browser with userscript support (Opera 8+, IE, …). There’s a Greasemonkey extension for almost every browser but I’ll just refer you to the Greasemonkey Wikipedia Article.
Just install my script
