Here’s how to access the new feature. Sign in to Twitter – you may get a prompt pointing out the new Local Trends. If not, look to the sidebar where the Trending Topics section is. You should see a new little section above the list of topics. It will include a location with a link to “Change” underneath. Click the link to see the options.

You can check out trending topics of any cities of available – you don’t have to live there to see them.
