Search Twitter in Streams

You can use Twitter quick search in Streams to to find trending topics, users, and content by keyword, hashtag, or location. You can save your searches as streams so you can monitor important conversations. For example, listen to what people are saying about your brand or competitors, or focus in on other opportunities to engage with customers.

You must have a connected Twitter account to search Twitter.

Search for keywords or view trending topics

Web Mobile
  1. Go to Streams, and then select Twitter quick search on the left.
  2. Choose your search query:
    • Select a trending topic from the quick search list.
    • Enter a keyword, and then select Enter on the keyboard to search by keyword.
  3. Optionally, select Save as Stream at the bottom of the search results to save the content as a new stream. The stream displays content based on that keyword (not based on location).
  4. Point to a tweet in the search results to like, reply, retweet, or send a direct message to that Twitter user. Selecting Like allows you to like the tweet from multiple Twitter accounts.
  5. Select the X at the top to close the search window.

Tip: To find local search results, enter a keyword and then select Use your location . This narrows your results to within a 25-kilometer radius of your location. You must enable location detection in your browser to use this feature.
