📝 Notes

Scrape trending topics around a location from the Official Twitter API Place Trends Endpoint. These topics are similar to trending hashtags on the current Twitter homepage, but may have been simply keywords when this endpoint was added a long time ago, whereas now the current Twitter experiences has gone all-in on hashtags.

You may have trouble using this endpoint however, as the Yahoo! link provided in Twitter’s API documentation is now broken. Furthermore, Twitter is in the process of deprecating its V1 API (that this endpoint is a part of), and there is no replacement for this in the V2 endpoint, so it seems like this will no longer work in the future and will not be supported.
