I am working on a research project that is largely based on geography and location. I am currently attempting to use the search api via http to get the contents of tweets that meet certain criteria and map them to locations and do some analysis on that.
My current result sets from each query is roughly 10-15 json objects and potentially 1 or 2 (if any) contain geo location data. I was wondering what the optimal way to structure my query is such that I can get back a result set that contains mostly objects with location data.
An example query is below, I have included a query that searches for tweets about the Olympics in Africa and within 1250 miles (I picked a random lat/long in Africa).
Perhaps I should be using a different API? If so, which api, and what is a good sample query along similar lines?
Thank you for any help,
