Yelp and Twitter are now intertwined in the U.K. and Japan.

Yelp senior vice president of business and corporate development Chad Richard announced in a blog post that Twitter users in those two countries can add geotags from Yelp to their tweets by tapping the location icon.

Richard added that a similar integration launched in Germany in March, and he said in his blog post Friday:

Tweets will now have more context with location names, Yelp ratings and business details and an easy way to see other tweets and photos tagged with the same location.

Yelp geotags also benefit business owners as they are now able to tag their businesses in tweets and extend their potential customer reach through their Twitter channel.

Richard said the integration is currently available to Yelp users via its iOS and Android applications, with the web to be added “soon.”
