Tweets are very much time-bound, especially when using a location. You'd have to select a certain time limit, like one hour. You would then get all tweets within 2000 meters (for example) of the location, for that one hour. Loop through the tweets and select the nearest five. If there are too many results for the 2000 meters, you could lower it to 200 meters, although that would give less results for lower populated areas.
