I want to get tweets related to a particular query from a certain area


#1

I want to get tweets related to a particular query from a certain area … the get_search api works only for the geocoordinates of san francisco … when I change it to some other coordinates , it doesnt’t return anything … Why is that ???

eg : params = urllib.urlencode(dict(q=‘obama’, rpp=100, geocode=‘37, -122,100mi’)) works
but params = urllib.urlencode(dict(q=‘obama’, rpp=100, geocode=‘40.7142, -74.0064,100mi’)) doesn’t work

Any way around this ??
