Twitter's 'Nearby' mobile app could tell who's tweeting nearby

Washington, Dec. 15 : Twitter is testing a feature for its mobile app that would show you who's tweeting nearby.

The new app will show a tweeter whether you follow them or not and what they're posting to the micro blogging site.

According to CNET, the feature called Nearby would work only for people who have shared their location info with Twitter.

The upper half of the 'Nearby' screen is a map where a blue dot pulses over the user's current location.

The bottom half shows a timeline of recent nearby tweets, with icons on the map noting their locations, the report said.

Clicking on an icon pulls the corresponding tweet to the front of the screen, it added.
