Thanks!! I'll code something up for her if I can find a way to translate a Twitter search query into SQLite SQL or regular expressions ;-)

Quoting Mark McBride <>:

It's a pretty common request of the search team.  I don't think there are
immediate plans to support it due to its technical difficulty.

I just had an interesting feature request from a user. It seems like
it would be fairly difficult to do without access to the full
database, but what she wants is to be able to limit a search to just
the people she's following. For example, if she saw a link go by from
someone and didn't remember who it was from, she'd like to be able to
search for it.

I can think of fairly easy ways to code it using the API, but I'm
wondering if something like that could be built into the web app.
