Exporting Twitter Data for a Specific Location

Sep 2, 2015 at 9:33 PM
Hi! I am trying to download Twitter data with respect to a specific hashtag but only in Pennsylvania. The 'Near' operator isn't working and I can't figure out the syntax for the search function in the program to restrict the search to a specific location - can you help?

Thanks!

Hello!

Thank you for the interest in NodeXL!

Sadly, the "Near" operator does not work via the Twitter API.

However, if you have PowerMap from Microsoft, you can use NodeXL to get a global data set and then us it to plot the locations of all users. PowerMap is getting almost 50% recognition rates for Twitter data I have been testing lately. You can see the initial results here:
