I wonder if this problem could be solved simply by integrating the
results from search with a filter from a service such as twase to
exclude tweets from users that don't meet a "likely non-spammy user"
threshold that you define?
I'll see if I can whip up a prototype over the weekend (unless someone
beats me to it).
