Is there any way to get the ip address from a tweet?


#1

Hi,

if somehow people turn off the location feature, how can i get the ip address of that tweet from twitter database?
so i can track where that people is tweeting from.
in the streaming API i can only found the location only, nothing for the ip address

is it possible to get the ip address as where the tweet comes from?

Regards,
Ricky

There’s no way – that information isn’t revealed. If the user isn’t explicitly geotagging their tweet, you won’t/can’t “know” where it’s from.
