twitteR's searchTwitter() function contains a 'geocode' argument that
returns tweets from users whose location falls within a given radius. 

I'm not completely familiar with the API from which twitteR pulls, but no
mechanism exists to extract location coordinates from the tweets themselves,

That is, the best we can do is identify the user-provided location of the
tweeting user, not his/her location at the time of tweeting. Yes?
