If you are as optimistic as we were about Twitter's location features, you should be downright giddy now. Twitter has acquired the company--and staff--behind one of the most innovative mapping-related APIs. Mixer Labs' GeoAPI , previously known as TownMe, hosts your geographic data and allows spatial queries such as "find the closest location" (for more see our earlier TownMe news coverage and our TownMe API profile).
Some Twitter users may have, at some point, had the need to share a conversation or a string of tweets with other people, and would have been left frustrated with the discovery that there wasn't really a way to do that. This was the very frustration that fuelled the creation of TweetVue; a tool that makes it possible to share Twitter conversations with other people. In addition, TweetVue's API gives developers access to this data, allowing them to access and share these conversations.
