The move came as Twitter added around 100 more cities worldwide, as part of an increased localisation of the service.
Twitter said in a post on its site: "We're bringing Trends to 100 more cities around the world including Istanbul, Frankfurt, Guadalajara and Incheon. With this update, we now surface the ‘most breaking’ news in more than 200 locations."
Users will now be able to see topics that are trending on Twitter in their area, helping to draw attention to subjects that might be of interest locally without making an impact on the network at large.
Other British cities added in this update include Belfast, Brighton, Bristol, Leicester, Liverpool, Newcastle, Nottingham, Portsmouth and Sheffield.
London, Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham were added to the local trends function in January 2010.
Twitter first began showing trends in 2008 and earlier this year added tailored trends to the service, which shows trends based on a user's location and which Twitter users they follow.
As Twitter has sought to increase its revenue the service has introduced promoted tweets and other commercial tools and has introduced more strict rules for how third-party services tap into Twitter.
