Curious on who’s using Twitter near you? Check out Nearby Tweets. The Twitter tool lets you know who is recently active on Twitter and is tweeting near the location that you entered. The app displays the most recent updates by those people.
Nearby Tweets is a dynamic search tool. It will display the Twitter users who recently made a tweet. You can expect to see a different set of results every time you refresh the search. This is to prevent you from following non active users and giving others a chance to be featured on the service. The more you update, the greater chance of others finding you through Nearby Tweets.
You can also further filter the results by entering specific keywords in tweets. This will allow you to find Twitter peeps which matches you interest. If you want to further expand or narrow your location search, just change the value of the search radius (measured in miles).
This is a great way of finding twitter users near you. It may not be as effective if the user placed a nonexistent or bogus location on his/her twitter profile, but if that’s the case, maybe that user doesn’t want to be found anyway.
