Finding tweets with TweetDeck

February 8th | | Uncategorized | Tags: None

I got bored tonight and decided, hey, let’s find some tweets near me.
But i typed in:

Location:Brisbane,QLD

And i got a screen full of job ads, maybe i used the wrong conditions?
After checking the list of conditions, i should have used “near:”

near:Brisbane,QLD

Okay, that finally works Open-mouthed smile

Then, since it keeps updating, why don’t i put it into TweetDeck
But if i try it, the column keeps loading, but loads nothing…
I even tried it in Seesmic Desktop 2, but also no results… (So i guess TweetDeck wasn’t the problem)
Doing some research that, seems you can’t use “near:” in the search, but “geocode”

After trying to work out the geotag, it FINALLY works! Open-mouthed smile

geocode:-27.568928,153.064098,20km
geocode:Latitude,Longitude,Radius
Radius = How far from the geocode you want to find tweets for

Anyways, loaded up the columns and i’ll let TweetDeck find anyone tweeting tonight Open-mouthed smile
