Localised Twitter trends arrive in 12 UK cities

Find your city's most notable tweeters and learn what's happening right now in your area thanks to Twitter's latest mobile trends roll-out.

Twitter has continued its efforts to improve the regional aspects of its service by adding personalised trending topics for 100 new cities around the world.

Among those new locations are 12 new cities in the UK. They include Belfast, Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Newcastle, Nottingham, Portsmouth and Sheffield.

Those cities are in addition to London, Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow, which have had regional trends since 2010.

The localised trending topics, Twitter says, will give users a greater sense of what's going on in their area, while also making suggestions to follow notable locals.

In a blog post, the social network wrote: "By viewing Trends in these cities, it’s easier than ever before to find out what’s going on in your area and to get involved in the conversations. You can browse any of these locations by clicking “Change” in the Trends sidebar.

"Regional Trends give you a great flavour of what’s happening in different parts of the UK. And if you’re new to Twitter, you might also like to follow some of these Twitter accounts linked to these new Trends cities for inspiration."

Among the suggestions in Liverpool, you'll get Liverpool FC (@LFC) and Everton FC (@EFC), but unfortunately for Liverpudlians, Twitter seems to think Wayne and Coleen Rooney are the two folks most worth a follow.

It could be worse though. Leeds' main Twitter representative is former DJ Chris Moyles, while Sheffield gets deputy prime minister Nick Clegg.
