Danny Sullivan, now at Google, said on Twitter that he'd "take the feedback back to our search team." He then added that "the tweets there, of course, often change." "Nor should they have been the first thing listed," he said.

He went through more examples in that thread of how the tweets were looking better. But knowing Danny, this is the type of thing he would point out as a failure on Google's part and something their algorithms should have handled better. Either by only surfacing certain types of Twitter accounts or removing Tweets from this search result completely.

Forum discussion at Twitter.
