I downloaded the Twitter iPhone app (v. 3.0.1c) and when I use it my
geocoded tweets are showing up in the location-filtered stream.  So,
seems there is Twitterrific-specific issue with location - I will pull
and compare tweets from both apps and compare them to see if I can
figure out whats wrong.

Still not sure why explicitly specifying a "Place" when tweeting on
the twitter website, that place isn't coming through but instead a
generic "Neighbourhood" or "City" is specified.  I guess this Place
stuff is relatively new and still has some quirks to work out.
