twarc help plz! search vs. filter 

This has returned nothing for hours:

twarc filter 'laurentian -"Laurentian elites" -"Laurentian Elite" -"Laurentian consensus" -from:@LaurentianNews'

This works nicely and shows results within the past few minutes that should have been caught by filter:

twarc search 'laurentian -"Laurentian elites" -"Laurentian Elite" -"Laurentian consensus" -from:@LaurentianNews'

Am I doing something wrong?

twarc help plz! search vs. filter 

@dbs alas search query and filter query are very different beastst. Check out the documentation about track here: developer.twitter.com/en/docs/

@edsu Ah this explains a lot!

twarc's docs mentioned they were slightly different, but "statuses/filter" redirects to developer.twitter.com/en/docs/ which in turn links to developer.twitter.com/en/docs/

Never would have gotten to the track docs without your help!

@dbs yeah, the birdsite api docs are undergoing a seismic shift due to the introduction of v2. I've updated that link though, which might work for some short amount of time.
