My tweets are a no-show, too. I tested with this tweet:

http://twitter.com/bigboxcar/statuses...

And it does not show up:

http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%2...

What's going on? Noticing it is not showing up on http://twemes.com either, so must be a data-out issue?

I'm having problem, too. None of my tweets are showing in Twitter Search/Summize. I tried setting my updates to private, then back to public. This has solved the problem in the past, but not this time. Updating from web, Twitterfox and Twitterberry. Same for all: Keyword search returns nada. User Name search returns @replies but not my tweets. Last update that appeared on Twitter Search, 15 days ago. Looks like I'm being filtered?

Same problem here http://search.twitter.com/search?q=mm...

I don't think I've been doing anything improper with my account. Please help. I've been trying to solve this for about a week now.

I started using the #invisibletosearch hash tag. Irony is that nobody will find it because I am invisible to search!

Makes it pointless to tweet about #election08, you know?!

Hey! I was checking to see if I actually submitted a ticket to twitter (think I did, but could not find confirmation email), so started setting up a new ticket and discovered that my tweets are now showing up in search!

Not sure if you did anything to fix, but I will give you ALL the credit. Awesome.

@loribourne,

I had only used the #invisibletosearch hash tag before the problem was fixed, and it looks like search has not indexed all of my previous tweets. So I just twittered a test, and it shows up:

http://search.twitter.com/search?q=in...

Interesitngly enough, it looks like my tweet does NOT show up if you search using the '#' character: #invisibletosearch

http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%2...

Wonder why that is? Searching with the '#' character works with other words:

http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%2...

What up with that?

So, it's only indexing your most recent tweets? I put one up a few minutes ago and I don't see that either, so if your problem is solved mine isn't yet :(

Thanks for the reply!

Hey Karl, glad you're being indexed again by Twitter Search. Followed your example and submitted a ticket tow Twitter. See if it helps. My updates stopped showing up on Twitter Search about 20 days ago.

If anyone from Twitter is following this thread a strange thing happened. I changed my account photo, then changed it back but it has now stopped appearing beside my old updates in Twitter Search. Instead, what appears is the beginning part of my pics file name on my computer.

Note to the Twitterati: I'm pulling my hair out over here. Help

Hi NikSmit. Is your Twitter account also called NikSmit? If yes, I can find your tweets in Twitter Search. See http://search.twitter.com/search?q=fr...

Looks like updates stopped going to search 2 months ago. I wonder -- did you change your username around that time? Someone in another thread mentioned that he had changed his username and his tweets stopped going to search around that time (but he's not sure if it's just a coincidence)

If you check my stream (@mjnewham), you'll see that I have tweeted 6,500+ - but search stopped indexing my tweets in December

.. I raised a ticket on Twitter Support #27027 (on the 11th Feb') but haven't heard anything.

I'm also having a problem with my tweets not being indexed. I submitted a help desk ticket directly to Twitter about three weeks ago but never heard anything back.

My tweets aren't showing up at all in search, not a thing, so using hashtags etc is a complete waste of my twitting time, I've sent a support ticket, must be around 20 days ago and I'm getting no support at all and no response, it's driving me nuts!

Username is BlazingMinds
