Is Twitter's search function just erratic?

I want to use Twitter as a medium to do some professional work, but for it to perform as desired I have to rely on search.twitter.com (or something similar, like twemes) to accurately compile all tweets with a given hashtag. But my own personal Twittering indicates that these search functions aren't reliable. What's the deal? [more inside]

Why doesn't my google searches of today have the info from the same search a year ago (even if it's in a different order?)

Why does Google, which purportedly have a mondo cache of everything, "lose" search results over time? That is, if I search on something today that I last searched on a year ago, my results don't include all of last year's results. I understand that there's a complicated ranking algorithm, but that doesn't explain why some results go missing altogether.
