Twitter search has its limits. For one, you can only search back so far, with Twitter making public search results available only for a limited period of time. That said, there are a few tips and tricks you can use to make sure that you find the most important search results, and you can even bend the Twitter rules, searching a little further back than the social network’s own search engine allows.
Whether you want to search within a specific time frame, want to filter your results by certain types of tweets (including only those with links for example), or even want to search only within a certain location – with the use of some easy-to-remember operators, and a few handy sites, you can do just that, and more.
