we’ve been active on Twitter for many years (you can find us as @OpenCage), and for the last few months every week or so we’ve been doing educational “tweet threads” about our service or common geo support questions we get. It’s been fun, and these threads have resonated with some people, getting liked and retweeted, but the great weakness of the medium is how short-lived it is. Content comes and goes in an endless stream.
So we thought we’d use this post to keep a running list of the various threads from most recent to oldest. We’ll update the list each week.
- The Vaguely Rude Places Map
- Border disputes
- Confusing places
- Why we allow only one location per API request
- Geocoding the oceans
- OpenStreetMap software maker interviews
- Our OpenStreetMap community interviews
- IP geolocation and how it differs from geocoding
- How we enhance our geocoding API results with other types of relevant data
- The privacy implications of geocoding
- What we did in 2020
- Browser geolocation and how it differs from geocoding
- The benefits of open data
- The nuances of reverse geocoding
While we will keep this list updated, the best way to stay informed is just to follow @OpenCage on twitter But of course threads aren’t the only fun we have on twitter. The final Friday of each month we do a geo trivia contest (search for #fridaygeotrivia on Twitter). We hope to see you there.
