Over the decades, numerous kinds of knowledge discovering and sharing of the data techniques are playing a major role to reach the information quickly. Among these since last few years, social networks or media and own blogging are playing a major in sharing the personal information, updating the status, tagging the location and many more features. These data are considered to examine and the acceptance for emergency services to respond with the information gathered from the social network. Taking this into the consideration, proposed an algorithm to find out the location of the person based upon the information shared. This is implemented on a most popular social media twitter to identify the tweets.
