How to Search Through a User’s Tweets on Twitter


Twitter now lets you easily search through a Twitter user’s searches if tweets are public. So, you can search across a user’s Tweets for any specific word or phrase. Twitter has quietly added this feature only on Twitter’s app for iPhone. So, only iPhone users can use this search feature. I tried looking for this search option on Twitter’s Android app and couldn’t find it. Maybe they add it in the coming days.

For searching through a user’s tweets on Twitter, open the Twitter app (For now, it is only available for the iPhone app) and then open the profile of the user whose tweets you want to search. You will see a search box at the top right corner.

This search operator works on the web, Android and iOS.

Android and web users can use the search operator while the iOS users now have a direct option on a user’s profile. I guess Twitter will soon add this search on Android as well.
