The geo/reverse_geocode method only supports json so make sure you are
using that and not XML.
Also, the method doesn't require authorisation so there is no need to
send the oauth tokens.
Hope that helps,

Okay thanks for the reply. I'm building a news aggregator so the goal
was to enter the location manually. Still, I'm having trouble with the
geo-coding method. I'm using Abraham's php library and I do the
$location = $connection->get('geo/reverse_geocode', array('lat' =>
'37.75' , 'long' => '122.68'));
Which returns 404. $location->id is empty. Any thoughts as to what I'm

Status updates only accept lat/long or place_id. There isn't a way of
providing plain text locations for these fields. If you wish to
textual representation of where someone is on your app you would
carry out a reverse geocode first.
I don't know the method you are using to obtain the location but
we see developers use the lat/long returned by the browser or device.
One thing that might be useful to know is that we perform a reverse
on the lat/long when we display the tweet, converting it to some
description like "SoMa, San Francisco", or "from here" as
Hope that answers your question,

Hey everyone, is there a way to geo-tweet with the API without
the Lat/Long? In other words, can I say "San Francisco, CA" or
for valid place_id's with this name? I'm trying to make my user
interface as user-friendly as possible, and asking for lat/long
userbase won't work. I also want to rely on as few as API's as
possible, so I'd prefer not to run my name through Google's Map API
and then through the reverse geocode API on twitters. Thanks.
