Nowadays Twitter offers a massive amount of exciting content with hundreds of millions of tweets a day. Therefore it’s almost impossible to find something specific without some additional filtering. Here’s the tool which might help you - Twitter’s Advanced Search.

As Twitter has previously stated, the Advanced Search offers filtering options that can help you find very specific content. For instance, you could see every tweet from a current day, by someone in your local area, with the phrase “where is the best bar?”. You could filter to see everything a particular person tweeted in last month. You could find all the users who have “yoga teacher” in their bios and so much more. You could find a tweet by remembering a phrase in it — even if you forgot who tweeted it.

How to use advanced search:

  1. Enter your search into the search bar on;
  2. At the top of your results page, click More options and then click Advanced search;
  3. Fill in the appropriate fields to refine your search results;
  4. Click Search to see your results.
