@Ed
I think that ought to work as well. I did try doing something like
that, however I hit a dead end because I kept getting cached results
on querying search. (see topic:
http://groups.google.com/group/twitter-development-talk/browse_thread/thread/7a022ad241e44ab3#)

Has anyone else had any success in getting location-based public
timelines using search api ?

Regards,
Elroy
