Query operators in users/search


#1

I’ve been trying to apply the same operators used in tweets search

for example twitter OR hp
https://api.twitter.com/1.1/users/search.json?q=twitter%20OR%20hp&src=typd&page=1&count=1&include_entities=true

i get nothing , is there any documentation how to send complex queries in users/search ?


#2

another example if i search

https://api.twitter.com/1.1/users/search.json?q=sadsadsaddsdas+OR+microsoft”;

i get nothing , but if i search tweets

http://search.twitter.com/search.json?q=sadsadsaddsdas+OR+microsoft

i get alot of results

users/search doesn’t explicitly support such operators or complex queries.

Hi Taylor ,

Thank you , if I may also ask , does it mean i can only insert 1 field and receive different permutations for it ?
are there any operators? or search by different fields (location,url etc) ?

Thx , roee

The users/search API doesn’t accept any operators or let you search by any specific fields. It just takes queries and tries to find the most efficient/relevant matches for you – using its own heuristics to determine whether it’s matching a location or name or otherwise.

How do i get tweets from specific user with hashtags?
I tried with https://api.twitter.com/1.1/search/tweets.json?q=%23HASHTAG%20from%3AUSER, It is not returning any tweets. https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/user_timeline.json doesn’t have option to filter using hashtag.

Please help me getting the tweets from a user with specific hashtag using API.
Thanks in advance.
