    So I guess these days Twitter won't show your account in their search results unless it meets certain requirements. Anyone know what those requirements are? It's not just simply age because I have a personal account I have had since twitter first started and even that one doesn't show in the search results. I'm sure it's a combination of age, your posts that have been retweeted, followers, etc. Anyone know the exact numbers?

    Illmill,
    According to twitter, only tweets that are made from the last week or so are shown in search, protected tweets won't show up in search and if you search on mobile you won't see all results. The company's criteria is also very vague so there aren't any real hard numbers on why or why not tweets are or are not appearing in search results.

    Check out their help language here,

    Hope that helps,

    Thanks for the reply, but I have already seen that page and I'm aware of what twitter has to say about it. I'm curious what the real trick is. My accounts, according to what you posted, should be showing up on search, but they just aren't. I can't figure it out either. I'm finding obvious spam accounts created within the past hour with only 5 tweets and no followers AND they aren't even following anyone. WTF?!?! But my account with over 12k tweets for like the last four years and about 900 followers doesn't get found??? This doesn't make any sense.
