Where can I find large data-sets of tweets from people in a certain region (say an entire state or city in the US), during a certain period (say last 6 months, or from June 1st 2015 to June 1st 2016)?

So, for example, a large data-set of tweets from people in Illinois in the last 6 months? Is this possible? Is location something Twitter makes public? Or am I looking at geolocated tweets only?

  • have you seen the resource here opendata.stackexchange.com/q/1545/1511 ? – philshem Nov 19 '16 at 18:59
  • well if you were running the old twitter build that ran on ruby on rails and you had the geocoder gem you'd just run request.location.coordinates. don't mean to be a dick, but that's what you'd do – boulder_ruby Jan 20 '17 at 5:14
