Hello
When I try to use Twitter Search Network, it can`t use Cyrillic alphabet in line of search term (Ukrainian language and Russian). It wrights "There no people in that network" in any query. But when I use Latin alphabet everything is OK. I remember that befor updating I used Cyrillic alphabet and everything was working. Is it possible to do something with this problem?
Thanks

Olga:

I've filed a bug report about this. Thank you for reporting it.

Here is a way to work around the bug in the meantime:
  1. Don't enter the Cyrillic search term in the Import from Twitter Search Network dialog box.
  2. Instead, go to http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/dencoder/
  3. Enter your Cyrillic search term in the big blue box on that page. Sample: Русский
  4. Click the Encode (NOT the Decode) button.
  5. Copy the encoded text out of the big blue box. It will look something like this: %D0%A0%D1%83%D1%81%D1%81%D0%BA%D0%B8%D0%B9
  6. Paste the encoded text into the Import from Twitter Search Network dialog box.
You should now get a network from Twitter.

(Thanks to mazensh, who discovered this fix for a similar problem with Arabic at http://nodexl.codeplex.com/discussions/445222.)
