GET users/search with q=bmw doesn't return user with id=1545994664(screen_name=bmw)


I am invoking the following URL - I am facing 2 issues as follows:

  1. The query never returns the user with screen_name=bmw or name=BMW(id=1545994664), though this user exists( I have verified with the results as returned in subsequent pages (page=2,3,4…) and never this appears in any page.

  2. As I invoked users/search with different page values(1,2,3…) I observe the user objects are repeated. For example the user with id=183201869(name=BMWi) appears in both the query results as follows: OR


Thanks for the report. Duplicate of another thread so I’m closing this one. We are actively investigating.
