New Tricks: Use happn.in to discover local Twitter trends

May 19th, 2009

happn.in is a great way of discovering local Twitter trends. Here’s how to use it:

1. Go to the site and click on your city. (To add a new city, suggest it on the site’s feedback form.)

2. You can either click on a specific local Twitter trend from the front page, or you can click through to the home page for your city. (Here are the pages for Chicago and Austin.)

3. Not only can you see the trends, but you can click through to the person who posted the Tweet. In the small amount of time I’ve used it, I’ve found a dozen new people to follow, all in my area, who I didn’t know before.

happen.in seems to be another great weapon to add to your Twitter arsenal. (Twarsenal?)

Cheers.
