twitter.place.url

note icon

NoteTwitter location data is available only if a Twitter user chooses to activate it. For each individual Tweet, they can choose whether or not to include location data and which location they want to specify, regardless of their real location. For example, a user in New York City could select Edinburgh, Scotland as the purported origin of a Tweet. If they choose not to include location data, all the twitter.place.* targets are unpopulated for that Tweet.

For a Tweet with location information, this string contains a link to the Twitter API to retrieve further information about the location.
