Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

For example, how would you write a search query that returns the recent updates from the Twitter user @google (and not return updates from other users that just happen to contain the word "google")? Naively, I tried from:google, but it doesn't have the desired effect.

It would be site:twitter.com/google then click on "latest" on the left sidebar.
