Performing an advanced search might seem like a complicated process, but it's a lot simpler than it sounds. This method can be done with any kind of device.
Advanced Search on a Computer
First, log onto Twitter. Then, type in a keyword into the search tab. After getting some results, there should be a button with three dots next to the search tab. Press on this button and click advanced search and then the Search Filter button.
Next, scroll down to the Accounts field. There should be a box labeled From These Accounts. In this box, fill in the desired account’s username.
To get more specific results, fill in some of the other parameters. Filters enable users to include or exclude replies or tweets with links.
There is also an option to filter the tweets based on engagement levels. This means that tweets with more replies and likes are brought to the top of the search. Certain words or languages can also be included or excluded.
The final way to refine the search is to fill in the Date section. After filling in all the necessary parameters, click search.
Advanced Search on a Phone or Tablet
The advanced search option on smartphones and tablets is the same as the process mentioned above. The only difference is that instead of accessing Twitter using your browser, you access it using the Twitter smartphone app.
There is an easier method to find a tweet from a specific Twitter account. First, log into Twitter. Then, click on the search bar. Next, type “from:” followed by the account name.
Note that there shouldn’t be a space in between the “from:” and the account name. For example, if the tweet is by Twitter’s founder Jack Dorsey, type ‘from:jack dorsey.’
It’s also possible to add more search parameters. To look for tweets featuring a specific word, simply add the word at the end of the search entry. For example, to find all the tweets by Jack Dorsey including the word Twitter, type ‘from:jack Twitter.’
There is no limit to the words that can be added to the ‘from:’ search query. To search for a phrase, the same process is repeated, however, the phrase should be placed in quotations.
After filling in the search bar, press enter and all tweets matching the criteria should be displayed.
