you're doing it wrong

Am I missing something?  Twitter search results return relatively stale results.  Check out the search below for "Isner" that I was using to find out who finally won that epic Wimbledon match.

Two problems here.  First the top 3 results are results with significant retweets but are hours old.  Second the remaining results are 14 minutes old.  Hardly real-time.  By the time actual tweets showing Isner had won came in, I had already read the results on the NY Times.  I search Twitter for "real time" foremost and relevance second.  I swear Twitter is run by incompetents.
