Negative Keywords or Keyword Filtering for Mentions

It would be nice to attach negative keywords or some filtering to the keywords used for mentions.

The issue I'm running into is that we have a street called Sierra College Blvd and our school is called Sierra College.

I would like to have the keyword Sierra College but filter out the mentions that have blvd or boulevard. Most times when someone mentions blvd or boulevard, at least in a tweet, it seems to be because of a car accident or a place of business.

I'm suggesting some filtering options because it might be nice to filter on those negative keywords that you set up due to the fact sometimes people put both Sierra College and Sierra College Blvd in the same mention.

    Hi Tosh,

    We don't currently have this capability, but I agree that it would be a nice
    enhancement to the Mention Tracker. I'll keep you updated regarding our
    development towards your idea as I don't think it would be difficult to
    implement. Thanks!
