How can I search for Twitter tweets by geography (location) of the user?

Follow

Searching by geography is no longer possible (through historical premium Twitter data
with geo enhancements) due to changes made by Twitter. Actually, it never really was practical unless you were willing to use non-random, non-representative samples derived from the less than 1% of Twitter users who manually opt in to share geolocation (geo:) data. 

There are other ways to impute location from other elements in the metadata (sometimes, for example, the author bio) but there is a huge error rate and also quite incomplete data.
