Thanks for the response.
The relevant portion of the code is altered in a few different places. I added a params.geocode with a radius and altered a middle section of the getTweets function with an additional boolean to more specifically filter out tweets not desired and with alterations to the geo coordinates portion of that function (so that it spits out latitude and longitude separately). I also deleted the user input portion of the deleteDuplicates (near the bottom of that function’s code related to the variable resp).
I wouldn’t mind switching to v6, but it is really important to me that these three alterations survive in some form because I’m using the sheet as a way to publish an up-to-the-minute .csv file for a mapping project (http://kenya-tweet.matrix.msu.edu – fair warning: awful color scheme ahead).
