Hi,

Twitter search api is not working for some searches.It showing the proper result only when I given the exact screen name.
For example
To search ThKollywoodNews page in twitter,I triggered https://api.twitter.com/1.1/users/search.json?q=ThKollywoodNew,it does not show any results.But when i searched with exact screen name like https://api.twitter.com/1.1/users/search.json?q=ThKollywoodNews ,it returned ThKollywoodNews page.

This is expected behaviour - afaik, twitter search doesn’t do partial string matching.
