Search not returning ANY tweets


#1

Hi,

We have been using a number of different tools to test this out, including the dev.twitter.com/rest/tools/console app. For some reason, the API never returns ANY results when we do a search for #coachablemoments However, when I search for that via the twitter web interface, we get all the proper results.

https://api.twitter.com/1.1/search/tweets.json?q=%23coachablemoments

Can any help? This is the result we do get:

The most recent Tweets I can find in web search for that term are from February.

The Search API unfortunately only allows you to search back 7-12 days, so these results are outside the scope of the API.
