I'm trying to use the Search API on a particular user. This user has
tweets available, but the API returns 0 results. (I'm making the call
in JSON, but for demonstration purposes the ATOM feed should work)

Works: http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?q=from:eightlines&rpp=1&callback=?
Doesn't Work: http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?q=from:80s&rpp=1&callback=?

User 80s content is present: http://twitter.com/80s and the feed is

Initially a colleague suggested it was because the username began with
a number, but this doesn't seem to be the issue. We've also tried to
get the status of the user, but that requires authentication which
we'd prefer not to do.

I haven't been able to find anything in the API docs that would shed
light on the situation. Am I missing something simple?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
