NLP, especially sentiment analysis, is hard. The fact that tweets aren't English but an evolving language makes it harder. But there are certainly companies, for example Attensity, that are doing much better than the emoticon-counting that Twitter search does. And there is http://twittersentiment.appspot.com/, a research project by some grad students at Stanford. Perhaps you've heard of two other Stanford grad students, Sergey Brin and Larry Page? -- M.
