Twitter will remove the precise location tagging in Tweets in the coming weeks. This announcement was made today by the Twitter support account.
The reason behind the discontinuation of this feature is, this is one among those features available on Twitter which are rarely used by the users. And so, Twitter plans to remove it for forever from its platform. The company said this is because “most people don’t tag their precise location in Tweets.”
Most people don't tag their precise location in Tweets, so we're removing this ability to simplify your Tweeting experience. You'll still be able to tag your precise location in Tweets through our updated camera. It's helpful when sharing on-the-ground moments.

However, this feature will still be available for photos through Twitter’s updated camera. Twitter users can opt out of location sharing features in its “privacy and safety” menu. If you don’t want to share your precise location details, you should continue keeping the feature turned off since it is still available on Twitter’s camera.
