I figured out what's happening. When "RT @thekabira" gets added
front of the tweet, it makes the tweet text longer than 140
it then cuts off the rest of the tweet, which is what had "act"
in it, so it
never shows up through the streaming api tracking for anything
with "act" in
So this tweet: "What’s the deal with the Climate Bill? RT new
#climategraphic, win a prize!http://bit.ly/12H1X7via @PhaedraEL
turns into this, when it's retweeted:

My understanding is that the only way to get all the new
through the streaming API because they don't show up in
search. So I'm
using the track method, but I'm not seeing retweets come through.
retweeted twice, but I didn't see it come through. Old style
continue to come through normally.
