Sick of all this Apple Tablet talk? Why not switch your Twitter Trending Topics to something more localized? Actually, the new feature is still confined to major cities, so odds seem pretty good that, no matter where you go, most people will be breathlessly tweeting about Steve Jobs and company.

The new feature, rolled out last night, lets users "localize" their top trends, by country or by city. The spot reserved for Trending Topics on the right hand column of the site now reads Trending: Worldwide. Users can change locations with a pull down menu.

Countries include Brazil, Canada, Ireland, Mexico, the UK, and the US. On the city side, the service is largely confined to the US, including Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, San Antonion, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington D.C. London and Sao Paulo are also on the list.

Twitter is currently working on adding more cities.
