Get only geolocalized tweets


#1

Hi,

I want to get the geolocalized tweets for a certain hashtag, for a certain location and for a certain date.
http://search.twitter.com/search.json?rpp=100&q=dretadecidirhotot&geocode=41,2,500km&since=2012-11-09&until=2012-11-10

Doing this I also obtain the ones with “geo”:null and I’m not interested with them.

Is there any way to collect just the geolocalized tweets?

It’s my first time doing something similar and I’m pretty lost.

Thank you.

The Search API doesn’t provide a way to only get geo-tagged tweets – you would just have to filter out the ones you’re uninterested in after fetching. The Streaming API’s location-matching features against tweets in real time only matches explicitly tagged tweets though.
