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* targets are unpopulated for that Tweet.

Full details of the location the Twitter user supplied for an individual Tweet. For example:

  • York, Ontario
  • Division No. 11, Alberta
  • Greater Vancouver, British Columbia
  • Halifax, Nova Scotia
