Dear group
I uses 'searchTwitter'  to get users tweets it works  for English words such as ("iphone")
but when working with Arabic   text
searchTwitter("ÓæÑíÇ")   it gave me the following Error

Error in twInterfaceObj$doAPICall(cmd, params, "GET", ...) : 
  Error: Forbidden

my questions  are
how to make it understand the unicode characters?
and if It is a hashtag should I write it that way "#ÓæÑíÇ"

many thanks in advance
