First of all, most retweets do not have ‘geo location enabled’ so there is no way to map them and see where they come from; or to maybe assign them location based on user’s set location (as many of them have fictive ones like ‘from Milky way or from Mars’). I was considering using time zones as approximate locations, but it didn’t feel good enough. Also, the maximum number of tweets that you can search is 200, so what I did is I searched for retweets based on language they appear in.

I’ve just caught Justin’s biber’s tweet:

If it is a language search you didn’t want to show the most popular ones; so it depends only on time when the refresh button is clicked
