My tweets and hashtags are not showing up on Twitter Search. It's like I'm excluded or blocked although I've made everything possible public.

Have I been blocked? Is that even possible?

I have the same issue. My tweets did show up months ago, but not any more and hashtags don't work either.

I created a support ticket for my issue: http://twitter.zendesk.com/requests/1...

That ticket was created April 2, 2009 and I have not received any response. Kinda lame customer service even for a "free" app.

Twitter has still not fixed my account my tweets and Hashtags dont appear in search what a bummer.

Whats very disapointing is that they keep changing the status of my support request to solved when its NOT (they've been doing that since March)

No tweets or name in search and no hashtags in twitscoop

My #hashes and tweets don't appear on Twitter search, twitscoop etc. Nothing appears on search.twitter.com except for @replies to me. My username is johnthurm.

My tweets are not searchable.

For some reason my tweets are not searchable (do not show up in twitter search). I am not a spammer, nor has my account ever been suspended. I've requested help from twitter 3 times now but they don't even respond. I would like for other users to be able to find me via keywords and I would like to participate in hashtagging, but it's pointless. Can anybody help me?

*edit* I NO LONGER APPEAR IN PROFILE SEARCH EITHER! :(

My tweets stopped showing up in twitter search (about a week ago) since a twitter app started posting spam through my account. Though I kept deleting that spam, it stilled showed up in search. I've opted out of that twitter app and sent a support ticket explaining my problem. They replied with a link to their help section with instructions how to fix the problem which I followed step-by-step but nothing has happened for about a week, so I'm getting frustrated... My user name is linkranker

I have a conversation with a hashtag #blsms and none of my comments are making it into the stream, but when people retweet my comments... those make it to the stream. Aaaarg. So frustrating.

How did you get their attention? I've opened three support tickets and @ replied all the twitter people with no luck!

johnthurm, how did you get on Twitter's radar? I had opened a request that has since been closed with no action or notation.

Sure would like my cache cleaned! :)

Okay, I have the same darn issue. I was trying to participate in #litchat today and nothing I posted would go through nor show up in the search. But when I asked others to post for me they would. I am glad to find this and would like my cache cleaned too...I can't even figure out where to open a ticket. Sigh.

Clean out my cache! It needs a good cleaning! I'm also tired of my tags not working- isn't twitter supposed to be about networking? How am I supposed to do that easily if hashtags do not work and I don't come up in searches? Hmmmm?

@tsdivadani s call it a twitenema!

To my knowledge, people are not getting help. I have opened two support tickets and both were closed without a solution.

This has been happening to me as of the past two days. I don't know if it's because I tweet too much or what. None of my hashtags show up within trending topic searches. I hope twitter hasn't excluded my name because they think I'm a spammer. I try and block all spammers from following me.

We really should join forces, you all check out this thread, where we're discussing the same problem. Some of us had this start on Friday June 12 when there were a number of other issues happening with search on twitter, and some of us were using tweetdeck at the time, how about you?

Please join this thread too, mark that you're having the same problem, and let's see if we can get a resolution.

Yes, Reaper... I have been using TweetDeck on and off. Sometimes even side by site with the actual twitter web page. I like the notification sounds from tweet deck and then I just reload my twitter web page. This is frustrating

Well I sent a message to Twitter "support" saying this:

"Hash tags are not working for my account, nor do I come up in a search. It's been this way for about a month now, and using the "get satisfaction" blog is not helping me solve this. Please help, I rely on the use of hashtags for networking. Thanks!"

This was the email response:

We're currently experiencing a couple of issues with finding people; if you can't find yourself in search, make sure you've posted updates (so we can index you and your updates.) Profiles that haven't posted updates aren't indexed in search.

Profiles added in the last 8 weeks aren't being indexed by search. We're tracking this problem here:
http://help.twitter.com/forums/31935/...

Due to high volume, support requests reporting this issue are being closed, as we're aware of and working on the problem, and tracking it in the known issues page. Please check the thread above for updates or post comments there, and don't re-open tickets. A solved ticket doesn't mean the bug is fixed; bug fixes will be announced on the known issues page.

When you're using 'Find People' to look for folks by name or user name, you can only perform 50 searches per hour before you're limited-- this is for abuse control and spam prevention. If you hit a search limit using Find People, try checking out Twitter Search's advanced search:

http://search.twitter.com/advanced

If you're not listed in search and your profile is public, we may be investigating your account for a violation listed here:
http://help.twitter.com/forums/26257/...

If you're sure that doesn't pertain to you and you still can't find yourself or your friends, reply to this ticket and let us know.

---Which really wasn't helpful at all. Mostly it just makes me more frustrated, but thought I'd share my results.

This just started happening to me a few days ago - at least a FEW other people seem to be seeing my hash list tweets, but they're now being hidden from me. What's the story...?

I have the same problem. Two support tickets dating a week old and no action. Hurts the ability to use Twitter if you cannot participate in hashtag conversations because my tweets do not show up in the hashtag search.
If the answer is clearing my cache - TWITTER - please clear my cache.

It can be really frustrating...I went to a conference where I blew the entire week of communicating in hashtag conversations due to this issue. This basically means that the service is not yet ready for prime time, which is ashame because it has so many positive aspects. All that being said, someone finally did fix mine over the weekend. I think it might be a case of them being overwhelm...

exactly. Today is a big day I really could use hashtags, and I'm using them but they aren't showing up of course. It's really hindering my communication. If the cache clearing is the answer, then I do hope they get around to me soon. It's been since the end of May that I've had this problem. I think the fact Twitter pretty much blew me off when I sent in a support ticket added to my frustration. Being such a cheerleader for them, I guess I just expected better service.

It is damned frustrating! All my tweets on specific #hashtagged topics are going to waste apart for my friends!!
