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


#1

I am invoking the following URL - https://api.twitter.com/1.1/users/search.json?q=bmw&page=1&count=20. 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(https://api.twitter.com/1.1/users/show.json?screen_name=bmw). 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:

https://api.twitter.com/1.1/users/search.json?q=bmw&page=1&count=20 OR
https://api.twitter.com/1.1/users/search.json?q=bmw&page=2&count=20

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