Google Places Listings Enhanced With Instant Update For Events [google-latlong.blogspot.com]
If you're a local business owner, we've just added two new features that can help you reach existing and potential customers even more effectively on your business' Place Page. Holding a special event today? Want to post a coupon for 5-7pm tonight? Have a new product in stock? You can now get the word out by posting to your Place Page directly from your Local Business Center dashboard. Once you've logged in and are on your business' dashboard, post an update and it will go live on your Place Page in just a few minutes.

We are also introducing a badge for listings that have been claimed in the Local Business Center. This helps our users identify listings that have been updated and improved by their business owners, helping them to trust that the information about your business is as accurate as possible. We are also making it even easier to claim your listing directly from the Place Page by following the "Business owner?" link.

I think this is likely a baby-step towards enabling automated updates from Twitter feeds.
