are geotagged tweets gathered from the public stream api a thing of the past? i get locations from the user accounts, but no lat/lon information anymore. am i missing something, or do i need to add a parameter to my request?

thx, airyt

Twitter changed their app in February 2015, this caused a very large drop in the number of records with accurate lat long coordinates. Now the “geotagged” tweets have a place (polygon) geometry attached to them. This is mostly useless because it refers to a city, or worse country.
