Is it possible in the settings to get more specific than the country? So if I search for breaking news, for instance, it would return breaking news search results by state, city or 25 miles away from me?

Another thought along the same lines -- Could it also do something similar in breaking news searches related to Twitter? Return tweets in search results (either in the main well or up across the top if they're video/images) on breaking news tweets? Perhaps also the tweets that are displayed be also geographically relevant instead of returning every breaking news tweet in the last 5 minutes, for example.
Twitter API for the tweets part?

This is already possible - try "nearby breaking news" or "new york city breaking news" for example

Maybe DuckDuckGo creators can make an option for users to share their regional location if they want to, for region specific results. It should be off by default, but willing users can share their "regional/state" location.
