    Hi all is there a way that I could see who are the most followed people within an area for a particular search term. I've discovered that I can use search terms like: near:manchester within:10km but then struggle with the most followed.

    Any thought or suggestions would be great.

    Many thanks,

    dEVS! ;)

    this is a stretch but you can try using refollow.com with the results you get from your search (near:manchester, etc.)
    Put all those people in a list and then load the list up on refollow and sort it by the person with the most friends/followers

    There's no sure fire way to do this without running it through Twitter ads. Moz can get a general idea of location based off of keywords and location tags, but Twitter itself is the only party that holds onto exact information.
