So often Twitter is full of great information – if only you’d seen it as it scrolled past in your Twitter feed, or if you had a way to recapture what was said by a particular person last week or last month.
Now with Twitter Advanced Search, you can.
You can search by:
- Twitter hashtag
- Twitter user mentioned
- Words or phrases used (or not used)
- Tweets only containing links or retweets
- Between particular dates
- By users in specific geographic locations
And one new feature we’re finding particularly intriguing – you can search by positive or negative attitudes of the tweets. (While this isn’t an exact science, it’s interesting to see how close they get.)
Once you’ve created a search, you can subscribe to the results of the query in order to receive new results.
For example, if you wanted to keep track of political candidates leading up to the New Hampshire primary, you would create two searches for each candidate within 100 miles of Concord, NH - one for positive sentiment and one for negative sentiment. By subscribing to the results of these searches, you would receive updates on voter attitudes.
Create searches for your company name and industry to monitor attitudes of Twitter discussion.
