Hi all,

I'm hacking on an app that relies heavily on phrase searching, and
have gotten very inconsistent results. Most search queries with
phrases work as advertised. See:
http://search.twitter.com/search?q=&ands=&phrase=%222day+let%27s+dream+with+our+eyes+wide+open!%22&ors=&nots=&tag=&lang=all&from=&to=&ref=&near=&within=15&units=mi&since=&until=&rpp=10
or
http://search.twitter.com/search?q=&ands=&phrase="2day+let's+dream+with+our+eyes+wide+open!"&ors=&nots=&tag=&lang=all&from=&to=&ref=&near=&within=15&units=mi&since=&until=&rpp=10

Others, however, seem to ignore the fact that I'm looking for a
phrase. See:
http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%22rabble%2C+rabble%2C+rabble%2C+rabble.%22
or http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%22i+need+new+socks!%22

I thought perhaps there is a minimum length or word requirement for a
phrase, but some very short ones seem to work just fine. See:
http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%22it%27s+happy+hour%22

Has anybody run into this? Any workarounds (besides further processing
the text from the calling application)?

Cheers,
Robby
