So Now Facebook Has Check-Ins — What About Twitter?

At an event on Wednesday, Facebook unveiled Places, their new location element that allows users to check-in to venues. Obviously, this mimics the core feature of smaller startups like Foursquare, Gowalla, Loopt, and dozens of others. The move of the big boys into this space was inevitable, but it is somewhat surprising that it has taken this long.

Senh: I’m glad that I currently don’t get too many check-in’s on my twitter stream. I don’t find them useful at all. I use Facebook to keep in touch with people, and Twitter as pretty much an RSS reader and marketing tool. It makes more sense on Facebook, but not really on Twitter. Still, now that Facebook is doing check-ins, I doubt Twitter will be waiting too long to launch theirs.
