Using Refined Twitter Search to Find Your Target Market


What is Refined Twitter Search?

If you use Twitter’s online application, you have probably used their search feature and either typed in a word or words and even used the hashtag (#) to help you find the content you were looking for.  If you were like me, you might have gotten a bit frustrated with the results because the output wasn’t quite as refined as you may have wanted.  Did you know there is a Refined Twitter Search that allows you to get even more specific search results?  You can search “all words”, “any words”, “exact phrase” and many more, but the one I like the most, I show you how to use in the video.  Learn how to use the Refined Twitter Search to find your target market!

Have you been using Twitter’s refined search?  Have you had success using the Twitter search feature to find your target market in your social media strategy? Share your results!

  1. Great tip, Knikkolette! I’ve been using Twitter for some time now, and never even considered using the refined search. I honestly have avoided it, and didn’t even know the thing exist. So thanks a lot for sharing. 🙂

    1. Deeone, it’s always a pleasure revealing a tidbit of information that can make someone else’s life easier. I hope you can use this feature to your benefit. 🙂

  2. Thanks, Knikkolette. I did not know there was a refined search option and also didn’t know that you could save the results. I have not given it a try yet, but I imagine it’s also useful for drilling down into other criteria besides geography. That really could be helpful. You know all the good tricks on these social media platforms. 🙂

    1. Thanks for the encouraging words Hezi. I think the more you participate and comment on other people’s blogs, the more they reciprocate and comment on yours, not to mention, end your blog post with questions that encourage comments. 🙂
