How does Twitter Location work?
You might already know that most social networking platforms including Twitter allow you to have complete control over everything. You can set the location to wherever you want.
If you want to change your location to somewhere else, you will have to begin your journey by knowing the basics.
When you try to post something, you will first get the chance to select the location that you want. You can either select a location directly from the suggestions or you can also search other places to get the location.
So, the first way to change the location would be directly changing it. The second way is the advanced yet easy way to change it.
Let’s see both of them one by one.
Changing Location by Searching on Twitter
You can easily change the location by searching. When you post something ad want to set ta different location, you can simply search the location instead of directly pointing it.
Twitter will allow you to change the location when you search it. So, it won’t be a big deal to change the location.
However, if you want to change the location to all the places on Twitter such as Twitter spaces, messages, etc. you will have to use the advanced way of changing the location. We will also cover the steps to do it.
An advanced way to change the location on Twitter
You can always use the advanced way to change the location of your Twitter account. For that, you will first have to change the GPS location.
As you might know, Twitter uses GPS to find your location. So, whenever you see the location on your Twitter account, it’s because of the GPS location. If you want to set a fake Twitter location, you will have to install the fake GPS location app.
It isn’t directly possible to change the GPS location. Therefore, you will need an app for the same. The app that we will be using here is FakeLoc. As the name says, FakeLoc stands for fake location. It will allow you to set the fake location.
