One of Twitter’s strongest features is underused by many: Twitter’s enhanced search options.
If you go to you Twitter homepage (where you will notice the layout has changed once again), there’s a subtle search box. Just type in any word you want to search on.
Once you hit enter, the real power of Twitter search reveals itself:
You can search for people, photos, videos and much more. And you can choose to only search your Twitter friends, those near you, or everyone. I’ve used this option many times when I remembered someone tweeting something interesting about a certain topic, but couldn’t remember who it was exactly. But obviously, the options are myriad.
If you’re not using the Twitter search options, you’re missing out on a powerful tool to find the tweets, links, quotes, photos and whatnot you’re looking for.
Do you use the Twitter search options? How do you like them?
