We use the API to associate accurately mapped locations with individual Tweets. Recently this has been working really badly with international (i.e. non-US) locations.
We just tweeted from the city center of Kiev, Ukraine, for example, and the Tweet, as displayed in the right pane of Twitter.com, says it’s from “Russia”.
Recently we had a Tweet in a town in western Turkey marked as “Greece”, and we also tweeted from the city center of Tbilisi, Georgia and that too was marked as “Russia”. This may bring a smile to the face of some Russians on this list, but it’s not actually funny…
No reply from @geo nor from David @ Twitter who was once our contact for matters of geolocation.
We would just like to know if we should give up on geolocation?
