This article covers a simple method to search your Twitter history to find tweets, retweets, likes, etc. Twitter Search is a free tool that allows you to search entire Twitter history. This is an open-source tool that you can in two different ways.
The first method is using an online hosted version. This is the simple and quick method where the tool is hosted on Saasify. But, this method limits the search to the last 100 tweets and lacks the ability to find retweets and likes. However, you can still sort the result via the mentioned users. There is also a paid plan in the hosted version that eliminates all the limitations.
The second method is manually hosting the tool. This method is quite complicated for an average user. If you want to give it a try, you can find guidelines for that here.
How to Search Your Twitter History?
In this article, I’m covering the hosted version. This version is straightforward to use. It has a landing page where you can connect it with your Twitter account and use the tool to search your Twitter history. To do that, visit the Twitter Search website. The website has a nice interface with an introduction to the tool.
On the website, click the “Get Started for free’ button. This prompts a “Sign up with Twitter” option. Click on the “Sign up with Twitter” button which takes you to the Twitter authentication page. Login with your Twitter credentials and authorize the Twitter Search app to access your account.
Once done, this app takes you to the dashboard where you get a search bar with 3 search options. Here, you can simply type a word or combination of works to find a tweet from the past. When you get the results, you can use the given toggles for retweets and likes to include them in results. Along with that, you can also filter the tweets by users. This is how you can search your twitter history with ease.
Twitter Search is a nice tool to search past tweets with ease. Unlike the official Twitter search tool, this only includes the tweets you are involved in and saves you from the trouble of going through useless results. The hosted version has a decent limit and if you are planning to use this tool on a regular basis, you can either get the pro or hosted it yourself to get all the features.
