MapD’s Tweet Map is a free demo that uses GPU processing power (as opposed to CPU power) to display hundreds of millions of tweets on a map visually. This is big data at your fingertips – hundreds of millions of tweets displayed during a snapshot in real time. You can zoom all the way down to street level to view tweets, Instagram posts, and Foursquare checkins.
MapD also visualizes what devices people are using and you can filter the data by using search terms or hashtags.

They are limited by the Twitter stream but they could do much higher.

Using Twilert’s history of tweets matching your queries will allow you to monitor tweets over time of individuals for investigative purposes.
