Improve the way you search on Twitter to get better results

Twitter’s search is a powerful tool. Where Google only shows you results from people who can afford to build websites, Twitter can show you what people are saying at any moment. When I have a problem, I usually search Twitter first to see if anyone else is asking the same question.

That being said, Twitter search is a finicky feature. Sometimes you can immediately find the results you’re looking for, but occasionally you’ll need to dig deeper. That’s where this table of Twitter’s search operators comes in handy (above).

Next time you’re looking for something on Twitter, use these different ‘operators’ in addition to your keywords to get more specific results.

Using Jelly to help people is as much more important than using Jelly to search for help.
Let’s make the world a more empathetic place by teaching that there’s other people around them that need help.

Bloomberg interview of Jack Dorsey (CEO and co-founder of Twitter and Square)

Twitter is where I go to find out what’s happening. My RSS reader is where I go to become informed.

This is EXACTLY why the Death of Google Reader is a sad thing…

But hey: everyone is discovering Feedly!

Personally, I’ve re-discovered it and loving it: took me 5 minutes to get used to it though and I’ve been really enjoying the experience since then

All this to say that Twitter makes it all too easy to forget that although you may be alone at home, you are not speaking to yourself or thinking out loud in a vacuum. And if you have an audience of any size — let alone one that could fill a small stadium — you really should think before you tweet.

I surprised some people when I said I was taking November off Twitter.

I’ve been using Twitter since July 2006 (user #1568!) with almost completely unbroken usage since late 2007, so that reaction is understandable—most especially from those in my life who consider me addicted to my iPhone.
