REST API users/search.json query returns nothing


#1

I am trying to make a call with the twitter test oauth to the bellow url

https://api.twitter.com/1.1/users/search.json

with this as the query string

q=xero%20OR%20bookkeeper%20OR%20quickbooks%20OR%20accountant%20OR%20cpa%20OR%20%20lang%3Aen&src=typd&mode=users

when i run the generated curl command the result is ‘[]’ however navigating to this url produces results

https://twitter.com/search?q=xero%20OR%20bookkeeper%20OR%20quickbooks%20OR%20accountant%20OR%20cpa%20OR%20%20lang%3Aen&src=typd&mode=users

why is this not working with the api call?
