Have you ever wanted to search your Twitter archive to locate an old tweet?
Twitter shows your most recent 3,200 tweets in your timeline, which sounds like a lot, but if you’ve been using Twitter for quite a while and tweet a lot, you may find it hard to search for old tweets.
The solution lies in Twitter’s Advanced Search function.
Here’s how to perform a search for your old tweets.
1. Go to https://twitter.com/search-advanced
2. Enter your username into the “From these accounts” field under “People.”
3. Select a date range from the pop-up calendar to view your tweets (or tweets from any profile you wish to see) within a specific time frame.
4. click the “Latest” tab to see all your tweets from this data range.
Want to see the first-ever tweet you sent? Head over to www.findfirsttweet.com. Authenticate with your twitter account to unlock the search bar.
