Twitter has become a very popular way to communicate with each other for the young and the old alike. It seems like that everyone is on Twitter posting some of the funniest things. It has also gained popularity among the journalists and social activists. The really reason I like Twitter myself is that you can follow and message your favorite celebrities, politicians and officials directly without any red tape. There are hardly any people who have not tried created a Twitter account.
In the Twitter app for Android and iOS, you can see the trending stories and suggestions. These trends are shown for your detected local location by default. For example, if Twitter app detects your location to be within Canada then it will display trends from Canada. You can change the location to any other country or global location in the following manner:
- Launch the Twitter app and login to your Twitter account.
- Tap on the search icon near the bottom, then on the Trends section.
- Tap on the cogwheel icon and then on Trends location.
- Choose “Worldwide” or one of the countries from the list.
- Now you are all set, you have switched to a preferred location to display the trends from.
Using this method you can see all of the trending topics and hashtags from any selected region from anywhere in the world. It is useful when you are traveling abroad and want to stay in the touch with what is hot and happening in your own country. For example, if you are traveling in the Scandinavia and miss the trends from your home country (United States) then you can simply set the Twitter Trends location to United States and in a few seconds you will be in touch with whatever is cooking in your native country.
