Twitter streaming by neighborhoods


I use tweepy to stream tweets filtered by location coordinates. Currently I’ve been streaming tweets from two different neighborhoods in a city and found out that the tweets are the same despite difference in the coordinates (they are non-overlapping areas).

Is there a resolution of the coordinates up to which the twitter API can filter the tweets?

Here’s a sample:

Loc1 = [-70.981963,41.591322,-70.89941601,41.75938768]
Loc2 = [-70.919537579,41.608616525,-70.905971579,41.617116525]
Loc3 = [-70.92909611,41.621725545,-70.92084611,41.632153545]

Loc2 and Loc3 are neighborhoods in Loc1.
