Today I experienced some weird behavior on the
/1.1/users/search.json REST API endpoint. when I look for a specific user, it doesn’t show up in the search results. It seems to occur only with verified accounts. for example requesting
/1.1/users/search.json?q=samsmithworld won’t return me those user, even if the query matches exactly the
screen_name of those particular users.
I usually do those query via twitter4j in Java, but I did the testing with POSTMAN as well. Also tested using different accounts.
Twitter search input return those results.
Is that a known issue? Am I doing something wrong around this ?
Thanks in advance
