Api returning no tweets when they exist


Im trying to pull tweets (api v1.1) sent from ‘@SienaSaints’ and it comes back empty. I know there are tweets from viewing the twitter page. (they are recent so expiration is not an issue)

my query is ‘from:SienaSaints’

If I pull tweets from ‘@SienaBaseball’ it works fine.



Not all tweets are indexed or queryable by the search service. The best way to request tweets belonging to a specific user is to use the statuses/user_timeline API instead.
