Note that a place may be the actual location in which a tweet was authored, but it might also be a reference to the place described in a tweet. To make it all a bit more concrete, let’s consider a sample tweet with the following text: @ptwobrussell is writing @SocialWebMining, 2nd Ed. from his home office in Franklin, TN. me/16WJAf9. Although there is a place called Franklin, Tennessee that’s explicitly mentioned in the tweet, the places metadata associated with the tweet might include the location in which the tweet was authored, which may or may not be Franklin, Tennessee.
