Search API Returning Less Results Today Than Manual Twitter Search


#1

I am noticing that since this afternoon when we use the search api it is returning much less results than when I manually search on twitter. I have been doing simple searches for things like urls and the results seem way off.

For example when I search just this url http://smallbiztrends.com/2013/07/byod-bring-your-own-device-remote-work.html I pretty much get nothing back but when I search the url on twitter there are obviously a ton of results https://twitter.com/search?q=http%3A%2F%2Fsmallbiztrends.com%2F2013%2F07%2Fbyod-bring-your-own-device-remote-work.html&src=typd&f=realtime

Yesterday I got 1154 tweets by searching this url http://moz.com/blog/top-20-local-search-ranking-factors-an-illustrated-guide and just a few minutes ago I got under 300…for the same exact search. I am seeing this across the board right now when I search urls that have been returning normal results before…is anyone else seeing this?

Thanks for any help you can give.

Any thoughts on this? Another example I am using the twitter console and only getting on result back for this search http://mashable.com/2013/05/20/social-metrics/ but when I search that url on Twitter it obviously has a TON of results.

This seems to have just happened recently so I am wondering what is going on?
