You know Twitter well. And must be knowing how to Twitter search? But maybe you don’t know the Twitter advanced search tricks.

The Twitter Bots/Archives gives you the advanced search experience but it’s not actually advanced. Every time you search Twitter, just type in the name and find someone on it.

For example, TechsMyWay, it will simply bring out our blog’s page and some popular tweets.

Difference Between Search and Advanced Search

Like I said above, searching for pages and peoples, you just put in the keywords for that. Talking basic searching on Twitter is what you use the search bar on the top.

To open the advanced search option, simply search for any query. From the left corner, see the “Search filters” options, expand “Show” and tap “Advanced Search“.
