Search API - geocode parameter issue


#1

I’m trying to search tweets in a specific area, however I get the same results with geocode parameter and without it. So, I think that searches using geocode parameter not working correctly.

For example:
https://api.twitter.com/1.1/search/tweets.json?q=hola&geocode=40.07,-4.50,600km&result_type=popular&count=10 (with geocode param)

shows the same tweets that

https://api.twitter.com/1.1/search/tweets.json?q=hola&result_type=popular&count=10 (without geocode param)

Any idea?

There are similar issues in these forums w/ the geocode param stretching back to 2011. Has this thing ever worked??
