Until recently, searching using the Search API and the Streaming track
filter matched terms ignoring punctuation.

Searching for "att" used to match statuses containing "AT&T", "at t",
"at.t", etc. Currently, searching for "AT&T Server" or "att server"
return different results - specifically, searching for "att server"
does not return results containing the terms "AT&T server".

>From the Streaming API documentation:
> Terms are exact-matched, and also exact-matched ignoring punctuation. ... 
> Keywords containing punctuation will only exact match tokens and, other than 
> keywords prefixed by # and @, will tend to never match.
