Filtering tweets in a Twitter list by hashtag?

Is it possible to use a hashtag to filter tweets from a Twitter list? I've used the pipe symbol to filter individual users but whenever I apply it to a list (e.g. '@Oberlin_Kahn/residents|#KahnHall'), Tweet Blender endlessly reports "Loading tweets..." I created a page with an example and the code: http://www.oberl.in/kahn/tweets-filte... . My end goal is to display 1) all tweets from an account (@Oberlin_Kahn) and 2) tweets on the list (@Oberlin_Kahn/residents) but only those that contain a hashtag (#KahnHall)

I gather this might be a problem with Twitter. If so, do you know of a workaround? The only thing I can think of is adding each user manually with a filter (e.g. '@person1|#KahnHall,@person2|#KahnHall,...') and I'd like to avoid doing that (I want to make it easy for an end user to add or remove people to that list).

Colin,
The |#hashtag filter is currently working only for individual usernames. I didn't implement it for lists. It shouldn't be too hard to do so I'll add it to my TODO list for the next feature version.

Give me a few days to recover from my vacation and jet lag and I'll code it up for you.

This is still on my TODO. Other features were made higher priority

3 years later and a functionality in TweetDeck, but not for this plug-in. Any chance it will surface?
