Sarah Perez:

It’s now parsing shortened URLs in order to discover additional keywords to aid in searches. In other words, Twitter isn’t only returning tweets where your search term is found in the 140 characters of text contained in the tweet itself, but also when your search term appears in the URL behind the pre-shortened link, like those from Twitter’s default URL-shortening service, bit.ly, for example.

Sweet.
