I suggest you ...

Add "near:" search operator

Twitter now supports the search operator "near:", followed by the name of a place, e.g. near:"Brisbane, Australia". There are other sites now offering this functionality under a "local search" banner (see monitter) and that's a super useful targeting tool for small business.

Please add support for this operator and allow geo search.

Thank you,
Gal

    Currently, you can do geocode specific searches. For example: “geocode:49.2846165,-123.0954835,25km”

    We do not yet offer functionality for the “near:” operator. However, this is on our road map.
