twitter for place: /

The great geek solution for adding a generic tag in twitter is “#word,” a “hashtag“, but some are using it to indicate place as well. Seems like a lost opportunity to integrate place into twitter in a first class way! The only reference I can find to an alternative is someone proposing “L:” — horsey. Since directory structures are the geekiest kind of places, I propose the humble slash, as in “/90210/” or “/3rd & Bryant/”. And no, updating the profile location is not a great substitute 🙂
