Summary: Expand filtering options for TwitterInputDStream
Issue Type: Improvement
Components: Spark Streaming Connectors
Reporter: Clemens Wolff
Currently, the TwitterInputDStream only supports filtering by keywords 
which corresponds to the "track" option in the Twitter API . The Twitter API
supports many more ways to receive a filtered stream (e.g. get Tweets in a
particular location ). It would be very useful to expose these additional
filtering options in this library.
Proposal: add a new public method to TwitterUtils which follows the same
interface as createStream  but which takes a FilterQuery  object as
argument. In this way, we give full filtering flexibility to our users.
I'm currently working on Project Fortis, a social data analysis platform for
the United Nations . The extra filtering options would be very useful for my
project so I'm happy to implement this and create a pull request.
