Wildcard support for Arabic text


#1

I am having issues getting results when searching for Tweets that contain Arabic text and wildcards.

As an example, setting up a stream searching for tweets containing the following hashtag pulls back relevant results:

تطبيق_قرآنى (associated CSDL = twitter.text contains_any “تطبيق_قرآنى”)

However, attempting to add a wildcard character produces no results:

تطبيق_?رآنى ( associated CSDL = twitter.text wildcard “تطبيق_?رآنى”)

Any help is greatly appreciated.
