Twitter's search paging is screwed because of their quality filter. They simply hide posts after paging takes place.
Visit twitter.com/search?f=tweet…. Scroll up and down for new results to appear. Then turn the filter off.
Your scrolling effort indicates the degree of censorship. 😂
When you scroll to the bottom, Twitter usually fetches 20 new results. However, it is possible that the backend returns less than 20 posts when the quality filter is enabled. Sometimes scrolling seemingly does not work because all posts are filtered and no result is returned. 😂
It appears that this behavior can be weaponized as follows: Coordinate the spamming of a hashtag or search query by accounts affected by #QFD. If the first page only contains filtered tweets, search results will not show up.

Maybe one can have a little fun with this. 😁
Actually, this might create an interesting legal precedent. If I got some Twitter bots into #QFD and spammed some hashtag, would this be a Denial of Service attack subject to § 303a StGB? I mean it would not be me but Twitter suppressing the tweets. Hilarious.
You can even break someone's notifications. I ran this little test in order to hijack #MeTwo:

I wasn't successful. Maybe my number of tweets did not suffice.
However, citing my main account broke the paging of my notifications due to spam detection. Haha.
LMAO. I made it. But I paid a high price. The 102nd tweet seems to have triggered the spam detection mechanism. 😂

I guess the first one tweeting this hashtag will ruin my success again. 😜
