API - search/tweets using @ handle no-longer working?


Hi all,

I’ve just noticed that the search/tweets API is no-longer bringing back results if I use the @ handle. I just get a blank statuses array.

The @ handle is encoded properly as %40 i.e. https://api.twitter.com/1.1/search/tweets.json?q=%40MyUsername

If I remove the handle the array of statuses is correct.

Does anyone know if anything has changed in the last month or so? This was working correctly when I developed it last month.

Any hints or tips would be great.
