Searching for Quote Tweets?

I’ve set up a zap to search for mentions of two different accounts, and post the URL to the message in a slack channel.

For some reason it’s excluding quote tweets - is there a reason for that? Or is there another way i should be searching?

Hi there, @Dorbs! 👋

Going by Twitter’s API documentation (See: Quote Tweet matching behavior) it seems that searches would only look for a match within the non-quoted content of the Tweet. It would not look for matches on content within the original Tweet that is quoted. So, if the mentions of those two accounts are included within the original quoted Tweet only then that is likely why they’re being excluded.

Do you think that’s the case here? Or are the mentions located within the non-quoted part of the Tweet?
