How To Add Your Business To Twitter Places

If you have a business where people check in, an office, retail store or restaurant or bar, you can and probably should add your place of business so that people can simply click on your place and add the address automatically.
It’s a pretty cool characteristic from a Twitter standpoint because you can tell people where to meet you or where a big event is happening then Twitter will add the location details, including a map, without cutting into your 140 characters.   
The image above is what people see at when they click on the location part of your tweet. (Tweetdeck and Twitter for the smart phone all seem to handle it a bit differently, but if it catches on I imagine you’ll see this added to all 3rd party tools.)
There are a duo things that will likely hold large scale adoption back. First people with lots of random followers won’t always want to give their location away and you’ve got to turn location on in settings and manually choose it each time. However, I do believe it will be used for events and can’t hurt to get your business listed.

Here’s how you get listed. (There is no formal process you just add your business as a user)
1) Log in to and got to setting – make sure “Add a location to your tweets”
2) Go to your home page and write a tweet.
3) Click on the location at the bottom of the tweet (it will ask to choose your current location and try to find you)
4) Click on whatever location is there and scroll to bottom and select search places (unless you already see your location on the list)
5) Put in your City to search and then after it searches click Add This Place
6) Enter the name and address of your business and that’s it.
7) Now when you tweet from your business it will add your location and others can choose it too.
