hI ... I am trying to map the tweets which I can retrive using Twitter Search API. This is what I have observed.
When I search for tweets based on location(lat n long) using the query: search.twitter.com/search.atom?geocode=37.781157,-122.398720,1mi I see that (in the xml format) there is <location > tag where the latitude ,longitude or semantic address like minneapolis,MN etc are mentioned. But suppose I search for tweets based on a keyword ,say IPL search.twitter.com/search.atom?q=@IPL Then I do not see any <location> tag in the atom code.In fact I am not able to get any kind of location information . I know that not may people have enabled the geolocation feature,so the % of tweets having the location is very less. But What I have cross checked is,I used a map interface, and when I click on it ,it takes the co-ordinates and gives the tweets near by .These have the location tag.Suppose I choose a word from the first tweet and then search for that word as a search keyword, the I do get the same tweet as the latest tweet ,but it does not have the location tag. Why is this so?
