Is there anyway to get data from twitter as in all tweets in or near a Geographical area with out search query restrictions? Using library GetOldTweets.


#2

Yes, Its possible to search the tweets for particular geographical location. But, it’s not possible to search without query. Also, there is always a rate limit applied for getting tweets with official API. Even with GetOldTweets library, the major limitations couldn’t be bypassed.

For further details please have a look at the official documentation of Twitter Developer API.

Yes, there are methods where limits can be bypassed. One could use scrapping from web and automated browsing environments such as Selenium with beautifulSoup.
