I found the reason why the retweet from my prev post is missing from streaming track results.
After retweeting the length of the status is greater then 140 chars. I track by #custserv which is in the end of the status. Looks like streaming tracks the body of the retweet, but not the original status text. Shall it be considered as a bug? Traditional search returns both original status and retweet in the above case.
