Advanced Twitter Search Tips


Twitter’s search tool is a fantastic way to find mentions of your company, products, brand, competition, and other insights. For example, if you run a business called “XYZ Enterprises,” you could enter your business’s name into Twitter’s search box and see the latest tweets mentioning your company. Likewise, you could do the same for your competition. The possibilities are endless, but it gets even more powerful when you use Twitter’s advanced search feature.

In order to use Twitter’s advanced search feature, you’ll first need to search for something. Once you do, you’ll be presented with search results along with a new menu containing various search options such as: Everything, People, Photos, Videos, News, and Advanced Search.

For example, if you’re interested in finding tweets with photos related to your original search, click on Photos. This will filter the search results to show only those with photos. The same is true if you click on Videos or News.

If these default categories don’t quite deliver the results you’re looking for, click on Advanced Search. Advanced Search opens up a blank entry form with several categories: Words, People, Places, Dates, and Other.

Use these advanced Twitter search tips alone or in conjunction with one another and get better search results!
