Hello all,

I'm forwarding an email from a colleague on another list. He has a student that needs some help finding a tool that can do Twitter searches (please see below for specific needs). I know I've seen several recommendations come across this list in the past, so I'm hoping someone here can offer some suggestions.

> I'm hoping someone on the list can help me and one of my students doing thesis work.  He's looking for a program that will allow him to search Twitter on specific dates to see if specific topics were discussed.  In particular, the program would need to be able to sort tweets by straight chronology, without privileging people with a lot of followers.  He found Topsy, but it seems to focus on relevance with no way to do straight time.
