It should be pulling "#drumbeat"

It's presently pulling "drumbeat"

This is a fun one. It's actually set up to search for #drumbeat. The javascript widget that we are using however, removes all '#' characters before sending the search string to twitter. We'll have to replace the widget or directly modify the widget source code (and of course serve it from our own server instead of just pulling the javascript from it's current location). I've added some negated search terms that were in use in other places (instrumental / hiphop / drum), so hopefully that will cut down on most of the irrelevant tweets. 

We can implement a more extensive fix post beta.

Thanks Paul!

* suggestion as temporary hack to remove some of the current irrelevant tweets appearing in the stream on 
http://drumbeat.trellon.org/dbl/

** Add negated search terms:
-chainsaw
-guitar
-Bruins
