GAP area with NO tweets downloaded using longitude/latitude bounding box in streaming api


#1

I’ve been downloading tweets using longitude/latitude bounding box for months when I noticed inside the bounding box, there is an rectangular area where NO tweets are being downloaded, while outside this area inside the box, downloading is fine.

I went to that area, and sent out a few geo-tagged tweets. And I was able to see my tweets posted on the website, and still NOT being downloaded using streaming api.

Anyone has a similar issue? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi @ShirleyLi89,

This is very intriguing. For those specific Tweets in question, have you tried requesting the Tweet objects with the REST API.

I am curious to see if those Tweets are even getting geo data attached to them.
