Geo tagging boosted with twitter places

Our friends at twitter have integrated geo location that now allows users to drill down to find tweets from specific locations.  There is integration with gowalla and foursquare’s check in feature.  This is really quite a big event as it offers both great opportunities as well as threats for those who are underperforming.
