Hello. 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.
