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.
