Search query parameter not working as expected


I’m trying to search for tweets with the keyword twitter since 1Nov2013

By much older are you seeing tweets that occurred before November 1 with that query? When I run it, it seems to function as expected. Which field are you using to determine the creation date of the tweet?

The search on is a little different than what’s in the API,
