Do those same users show in search? If not, chances are that those users are
filtered for quality from both Search and Streaming.

If the users do show in Search, there's probably something wrong with your
filter predicates. Note that track only searches on status text, not on the
entire status object. If you want to follow given users directly, you need
to also specify them with the follow parameter.
