I’m currently developing an app based on D3 to display geotagged Tweets on a map. I grab the relevant data through the Twitter Search API.
Here’s where I’d really need your help: is there a way to set the API POST parameters so that for a chosen hashtag it returns ONLY geotagged tweets?
I’ve looked at the docs extensively and googled quite a bit, but according to what I found currently people MUST specify a location and a distance radius.
On the other hand, how do I reliably get the most recent tweets for a given hashtag, but only the geotagged ones, without limiting it to a specifc location or distance radius (basically worldwide)?
On a side-note, apparently I’m not the only one having this issue:
It would be super-useful to have an option in the Search API that looks something like “&geotagged” and returns only geotagged tweets!!
Looking forward to hear you thoughts, thanks
