How to Search For a Specific Location in Tweepy
In general, we can extract tweets from a given places, by specifying in the query string one of the following keywords, followed by :
place - the place name or the place ID
place_country - the country code. See here for the country code
point_radius - the circular geographic area within which to search for
bounding_box - the 4 sided geographic area, within which to search for.
For more details, you can read the full Twitter Documentation.
In the following example, I search for all the tweets located in Rome:
place = 'Rome'
tweets_list = tweepy.Cursor(api.search, q="place: " + place,tweet_mode='extended', lang='it').items()
