I've noticed something about Twitter that's rather weird. Hopefully, I'm just doing something wrong and y'all can help set me straight.
Here is a tweet I posted:
It was retweeted by a friend:
Via Twitter Search (nee Summize) I find that two others re-tweeted Augie's retweet:
Here's my question: Why does my friend's original retweet not show up in search results? I've noticed this with a lot of other tweets as well. For some random reason, they do not show up in search. They also do not show up in results forwarded from SocialOomph, Tweetlater, and other tweet trackers.
Normally, this wouldn't be a problem. But if I have to track certain keywords (like for a client), it's rather bothersome that some tweets don't show up in search for what appears to be a random reason.
Is this random goofiness on Twitter's part? Or is there something I'm not understanding?
