Vincent Battaglia, a developer at Storify is the one who let us in on this little secret that wasn't clear in the announcement on Storify's blog.
Users can now search for a place, news event, subject, or they can search by a user, or stories that mention themselves.
I think the fact that Twitter uses Lucene may still be tipping the balance in favor of Solr/Lucene when some of these web companies choose Solr over ElasticSearch. There's certainly a very vocal group in favor of ElasticSearch that are trying to increase the number of converts from the established Solr/Lucene camp.
