How come tweets with links are hidden in search or hashtags? and tweets without a link do appear in search/hashtag

I can still see Tweets with links. They sort Tweets based on user engagement and other metrics. So, if you want to get into results, you need considerable amount of followers and engagement.

That's not true
It is though, if it's a spammed/non-trusted domain. Twitter is filtering these urls and excluding the tweets containing them from the search for something like a decade now.

You can find ancient threads on BHW regarding this: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/m...shtag-is-not-showing-up-in-search-why.507686/

You can try it pretty easily. Post a tweet without url, post the same tweet containing an url from a trusted domain like google.com and post the same tweet containing a spammed domain. The tweets will show up in the search in the first two cases, but not in the latter.

Yes you are right, Check what he said "links" which means any kind of links not just ghosted links or the spamming links

You should be able to find a tweet with a link even when using the Twitter search bar, there is no hidden tweet with a link.
