Now, in addition to being able to use them to tell the world what we are doing , seeing and even expressing our complaints, the brothers Enrique and Vanesa Frías-Martínez have given it a new use , to develop urban planning plans for large cities. In their statements to the Sinc Agency, they say that thanks to the geolocated tweets option, the data provided by tweeters about the activities they do can be extrapolated, and thus plan in an orderly and more concise way the places for leisure.
