What format will [geo] be from the /search api?
just the lat long, something like...
[geo] => 37.78029 -122.39697
I am watching a bunch of tweets coming into our service, but I can't
find one that is populated, so just thought I would ask.
(And I can't see anything from my account just yet... )

As you may have seen on the Twitter blog , geotagging is now
available for all users and developers throughout Twitter's APIs.
Specific geotagging methods have been added and existing formats
expanded to accommodate this rich new information.
To get started developing with this API and sending geotweets, check
Geotweets now carry the geotag whenever available and whenever they
appear in our REST, Search, and Streaming APIs.
Remember, geotagging is disabled by default on users' accounts.
Encourage your users to enable it by sending them to their settings
page . From that page, a user can turn this feature on by
checking the "Enable geotagging" checkbox. Alternatively, we're
also providing a mobile optimized geotagging settings page  that
you can send them too as well. As a developer, you can determine
whether a user has enabled geotagging by calling the users/show
method  or in any other <user> element returned by the REST API
where a user object shows up -- just look for the geo_enabled flag.
For more hints on how to use geotagging, check out our Geotagging
Best Practices page  where we have UX mock-ups, hints on how to
best support user privacy, and more.
We're really excited about this feature! And more is coming.
Go get lost. We'll send help.
