Thank you svache. Prior to receiving your reply I had added the geotagging to my Twitter. As you you suggested, I will use #wazelive hashtag. Thanks again. :D

Sorry, I'm not that familiar with the whole twitter thing... how can you tell if a twitter account is geotagged? :?

Heres a couple for the UK:

Here are a couple of them who tweet about traffic in Hawaii:

http://twitter.com/dt808traffic
http://twitter.com/AM940
http://twitter.com/Krater96
http://twitter.com/hawaiian105kine

Kind of wonder how you will incorporate them into Waze though, and how you will have them post the announcement on the right spot, I kind of don't see how as the tweets are, imho, a bit too vague for that.

Wouldn't it be better to use something like the following?
http://www4.honolulu.gov/hpdtraffic/
that one gives full information, what happened, where exactly and so on... kind of wonder where they pull the data from though..

Or here's another one also that could perhaps be used for the US, less informative but oh well:

I agree, geotagged ones are a lot easier, but also a lot harder to come by I think.. but yeah, then I understand better how you guys want to implement it all.. it kinda seemed so generic lol

Found one more for Oahu, Hawaii which might be of help:

if you ask me, this one should be a lot better than the previous ones I posted :)

I believe it needs to have the longtitude and latitude in order to geotag, but I could be wrong lol

Hi Mscat,

You need to have geotagging on in your twitter, and to make sure it gets seen by Waze you can add the #wazelive hashtag :)
