The from: operator successfully filters out posts from the user
@RetweetTestRecv when looking for posts with RetweetTestRecv in the
text. Here's the search string and corresponding URL:

-from:RetweetTestRecv RetweetTestRecv

However, when searching not just for mentions of RetweetTestRecv but
specifically for the hashtag #RetweetTestRecv the from: filter no
longer applies and we see far more posts, some of them from
@RetweetTestRecv. Again, here's the search string and corresponding
URL. Notice the added #:

-from:RetweetTestRecv #RetweetTestRecv

A relatively small issue, I know, but pretty important for my own
application. I'm going to have to work around it by getting more
results than I want then eliminating a lot of them.
