I am developing a simple twitter search app which allows users to type in a search query and when they hit search button it will fetch results by connecting to the Twitter Search API which will be displayed to the user.
When I was testing it I noticed for some tweets, query string doesn’t appear in the tweet text. So I want to know how the matching process works in Twitter search.
For example if my query string is “abc”, how does it find matching tweets? Is it based on matching keywords on just tweet text or user name or URL content in tweets or where does it look in a tweet to find matching keywords.
