12 Awesome Tools For Efficient Twitter Searches



It’s no secret that Twitter’s native search tool isn’t that efficient. Yes, it offers some nice advanced search options (advanced search isn’t accessible directly from your Twitter homepage. You need to go here for that). But it just limits itself to searching tweets when there are so many other things people might want to find out (like followers, profile bios, etc.).

This article attempts to list some of the best third-party Twitter search tools. I know there are more than 12 out there. But many of them have similar functionality so it was about picking and choosing the best ones. Check them out and make Twitter-time more productive. If you happen to be one of the few that have not tried Twitter, here is a good video explaining more about what it is.

Hence, if you are looking for a designer or programmer on Twitter, just type that query in this tool’s search bar and get the corresponding list of people.

You can use this tool to see how many people have tweeted a specific link. It doesn’t matter if the link was shortened using an url shortner. This tool will still show that in the results.

Tweetmeme, apart from showing the most popular tweets across the web, has a search function that’s pretty effective.

Hope you liked the above list. Don’t forget to spread the word if you did. 🙂
