Is it possible to search the twitter stream by keyword, and then map these tweets by geolocation?


Hello all.

I’m working on a project where I hope to search the twitter stream by a certain keyword, and then identify if the resulting tweets have a corresponding geolocation - and if they do, pass it out to the Google Maps API.

I’m working with Python, using Twython to access the stream, and probably JavaScript for the front end stuff. I don’t seem to have found anything obvious that suggests this is possible - does anyone have any advice on how I might accomplish this?

I’ve already accessed the stream and filter by keyword, so I know that works - but just want to be aware of any limitations before I start trying to connect these parts.
