How to get geo/place location with a search of tweets


#1

I am using this type of search:
http://search.twitter.com/search.json?rpp=50&q=%23proveN

What it does is looking for any tweet with this “#proveN”.

I have created a tweet from twitter website adding my location. (city)
I have tried to get the place/geo from the search and i always get “geo”:null,

Does anyone know how can i the geo location properly ?

Thanks.

Using the location box in the website inserts place data, instead of geo (which is set if you use a mobile device with GPS for example).

Unfortunately place data is not included in search results. You need to look up the individual Tweet item: https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/show/157278003536207872.json

Hi,

Thank @Kurrik, I have the same question…I am able to see the data using tweet id…But its now showing Place and Coordinates i null of the tweet…Tweeted by my follower.

Its showing “geo_enabled”:false …! Is there any other way of seeing coordinates or Place of the tweet.

Thank you so much …Waiting for your reply

Pawan.
