I am a member of a team working on a new startup to classify twitter
search results into various categories. Kinda cool, check it out
http://twecan.com/. However, not all queries may work, and sometimes
you would have to resubmit them as mentioned by Ryan.

To me it looked random, re-running the same query seems to work
sometimes and then fail. We thought it was our caching strategy which
we worked all night yesterday optimizing so that we don't hit twitter
search as much, yet we often get timed out. Wonder if someone is
looking into this.
