Geo-coded Tweet Streams

Monday’s deploy brought the ‘has:geo’ operator to Gnip’s Twitter Power Track. ‘has:geo’ gives you access to geo-coded Tweets (any Tweet with lat/lng coordinates). Geo-coded Tweets have been one of the most demanded streams/substreams to-date. We’re really excited to bring this feature to light.

Some usage examples:

  • “has:geo”- alone, gives you the complete stream of all geo-coded Tweets
  • “coffee has:geo” – gives you the complete stream of all geo-coded Tweets that contain the word “coffee”
  • “fire has:geo” – gives you the complete stream of all geo-coded Tweets that contain the word “fire”

For a complete listing of Power Track operators see the documentation. As with all Commercial Twitter data products brought to you by Gnip, they are only for use in non-public-display and non-programmatic resyndication use cases. If you want to do at-scale, full-coverage analysis of Twitter streams, we’re here to help. Contact us at info@gnip.com for more info.
