Localized Promo

Post by shaily » Wed Feb 12, 2020 12:18 am

Hi all,
Just a quick question... Has anyone tried to create a Promo with a geo restrictions?? e.g. I want to create a Promo to follow "Music lovers" around London or New York.
How can one do that?
Cheers,
Shaily

twitter does not give any options any more for localised searches. All the program can do is what you do on https://twitter.com

The program does support advanced search:
https://twitter.com/search-advanced?

works the same. Infact the old search values also work, if you can find a way to access the old version (change your useragent to an out of date useragent) then you can still access the location options which is what you want.

Or you could, i imagine they stop it at some point, but I think is still working
