Twitter get statuses user_timeline cannot return statuses with non-english characters


#1

Hello,I am doing Twitter API calls in Java(using Eclipse as the platform).While using the Get statuses/usertimeline API call,I noticed it does not seem to return non-English characters properly(e.g. Japanese).It does not return with “???”,but it returns squarish boxes instead of the actual characters.Could anybody help to resolve this?

The API responds in UTF-8. It sounds like you’re environment isn’t rendering or interpreting UTF-8 correctly. I would make sure that your operating system and environment are configured to handle UTF-8 well.
