You mean the list that appears when you click the @yegle link on your
twitter.com homepage? I'm pretty sure that's not a regex at all. Try
the statuses/mentions API method
to retrieve that list. If you're implementing your own search through a
local database of tweets, my first thought to emulate this would be to
check the tweets' in_reply_to_user_id properties.
