Search Twitter in Streams

You can use Twitter quick search in Streams to find trending topics and users. You can also find content by keyword or hashtag. Save your search as a stream to monitor important conversations. For example, you can create streams that “listen” to what people are saying about your brand and competitors.

You must have a connected Twitter account to search Twitter.

Important: X (formerly known as Twitter) is making changes to mentions and location that will affect Streams. See Changes to X mentions and location - Sept 18, 2023.

Search for keywords or view trending topics

Web Mobile
  1. Go to Streams, and then select Twitter quick search on the left.

    • 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).
