Hi folks, Could someone educate me about how Twitter search works? The Twitter documentation merely mentions: Returns tweets that match a specified query.
Is that that the results are guaranteed to have all the words that are searched? Or any one of them? Or is this a best effort scenario. At Twaller.com , we use search API a lot. Obver the past 3 days, we have noticed really irrelevant results which leads to very irrelevent tweets displayed on Twaller.com. One happened just now: Search query: "eating at Daejeon" Result: juhasaarinen @matt_stephenson Hmm. Wonder if there's a VM setup that runs in Win7 x64? This result is absolutely irrelevant. Funny thing is that this lasted abt 5 mins, after which search correctly didn;t return this result. Given the quality of some of the search results, I am inclined to check internally whether the search result contained the searched terms. But it would be good to get some feedback before we started implementing that way. Thanks, Amitab Twaller.com
