Does Twitter have support for keyboard navigation?

I've managed to guess j and k for going up and down tweets, but I don't know any others. Are there keys for actions like refreshing tweets (not F5), following someone, focusing the search bar, etc.?

Hit ? for a list of those shortcuts available in twitter.com.

Yes and what exactly do you hit to turn off this shortcut menu from showing when you just want to use a question mark? – user22529 Jul 24 '12 at 21:04
Esc I imagine. What you've left here is not an answer; it should have been a comment on phwd' answer. – Al E. Jul 26 '12 at 14:59
