A tip that should be better known, for doing a "rough sort" of Twitter
data:  When doing a search, add the string ":)" or ":(" to get
positive or negative posts.

For example, compare search.twitter.com for "Obama :)" to "Obama :("
 (don't include the quotes)

This could be used as a simple form of sentiment analysis for
AOO-related queries.
