6 tips for searching Twitter like a Pro

There are several ways to use the Twitter search box to quickly find the exact information you’re looking for. Here are several of the most useful ones:

  1. You can search for an exact phrase or group of words by enclosing them in quotation marks. Example: A search for “best seafood restaurant” will result in a list of tweets containing that exact phrase. 
  2. You can use the OR operator to find tweets that contain at least one of words you’re searching for. Example: A search for green or blue will result in a list of tweets that contain the word green, the word blue, or both of those words. Tweets that contain both words will be displayed first.
  3. You can use the – (minus) operator to omit a specific word from the search results. Example: A search for Australia -Outback will result in a list of tweets that contain the word Australia but DO NOT contain the word Outback.
  4. You can use the from: operator with a person’s name. Example: A search for from:BillGates will result in a list of tweets that were tweeted by Bill Gates.
  5. You can use the to: operator to search for tweets that other users tweeted to a specific person. Example: A search for to:BillGates will result in a list of tweets that other users tweeted to Bill Gates.
  6. You can use the @ operator to search for tweets that mentioned a user. Example: A search for @BillGates will result in a list of tweets in which the user @BillGates is mentioned.
