Users/search endpoint does not return the most relevant users


The users/search endpoint does not return the most popular or followed users for a given query.

Returns the same results that the actual Twitter search returns starting from after 2 or 3 results on the page.

I found this bug report that lists the exact symptoms that I am having. It says that this was closed about 3 weeks ago, but I do not see this being resolved.

Search problems have returned

Same as this


It was fixed but now it’s back.




It’s being worked on


Hi everyone - we pushed a fix for this yesterday so believe this is resolved. Thanks for your patience.


Thank you! Works as expected now.
