Do you want to search for an old Tweet or find a specific Tweet? Discover exactly what you're looking for in search
Advanced search is available when you’re logged in to twitter.com. It allows you to tailor search results to specific date ranges, people and more. This makes it easier to find specific Tweets.
How to refine your advanced search
Using advanced search, you can refine your search results by using any combination of the fields below:
- Tweets containing all words in any position (“Twitter” and “search”)
- Tweets containing exact phrases (“Twitter search”)
- Tweets containing any of the words (“Twitter” or “search”)
- Tweets excluding specific words (“Twitter” but not “search”)
- Tweets with a specific hashtag (#twitter)
- Tweets in a specific language (written in English)
- Tweets from a specific account (Tweeted by “@TwitterComms”)
- Tweets sent as replies to a specific account (in reply to “@TwitterComms”)
- Tweets that mention a specific account (Tweet includes “@TwitterComms”)
- Tweets sent from a geographic location, e.g. a specific city, state, country
- Use the place dropdown to select the geographic location
- Tweets sent before a specific date, after a specific date or within a date range
- Use the calendar dropdown to select a “from” date, “to” date or both
- Search for Tweets from any date since the first public Tweet
By combining fields in advanced search, you can tailor your search results in a powerful way. For example, if you’re looking for an old Tweet you sent about what you did on New Year's day, you can search for Tweets containing “New Years” but excluding “Resolution” between December 30, 2013 and January 2, 2014. You can also search for Tweets in English by using the hashtag. For example, “#WorldCup” sent from Brazil in July 2014 will show you Tweets about the world cup that year.
