Are there formatting options for queries?


#1

Hi everybody.
I’m using the REST service at GET http://api.twitter.com/1.1/users/search.json via the Twitter4j java library.

I’m supposed to perform a user search based on a list of words. E.g. I’d like to find all users whose screenName parameter contains the word “research”. Up to now I use just “research” as a query, but this returns very various results which don’t contain the word in the description field neither. Is there a syntax or some specification (like, for instance, what FQL is for Facebook) that can help me perform more fine-grained searches?

Best Regards,
