In a sample that I took 3 months ago of 25,000 tweets, ~0.5% were geotagged and 16% of users had geo enabled on their account. I didn't measure venues at that time.

A random sample of 1.5 million public tweets by 10k users over 18 months revealed the following:

1.0% of tweets are geotagged in some way

87% of geotagged tweets contain exact coordinates while...
13% of geotagged tweets represent regional polygons, such as cities

95% of users never geotag a single tweet but...
~1% of users geotag the majority of the tweets they post

Very passive users (< 50 tweets per year) and very active users (> 1000 tweets per year) geotag a smaller percentage of tweets than moderate users.

The prevalence of geotagging has increased linearly from 0.6% in late 2010 to ~1.4% today.
