I actually use the geocode with the search api for my script, so using
the search api isn't my problem. My problem is that I get "stale"
results from the search cache, even when querying after a sufficient
interval. Also the "stale" results seem hours old (at times, in fact
yesterday at 23:00 hours I got a few results that were from
22:00-22:30 hours. Didn't have the problem when using twitter search
from the browser). To overcome this Raffi Krikorian suggested using
the streaming api instead of the search api. My question was - how do
i get a location specific stream using the streaming api. From the
streaming api docs, there doesn't seem a way to do this at the moment,
which kind of defeats my purpose as I need to the deploy the script in
the next one week or so. Guess I'll have to live with the stale

Anyway thanks for the help.
