How to Search old Tweets and Messages

Find for old tweets that are not showing up in twitter search results. I bet many of you had to deal with this problem. I already blogged about other solutions to backup you tweets and make them searchable using Google Calendar but in that case you can search for public tweets only, forcing you to leave private DMs out of the picture.

During the last couple of days I bumped into and tested this new service called SnapBird. My take? It’s just great. Here’s where you can search with it:

  • further back than 10 days
  • within only your friends’ tweets
  • within your direct messages
  • within any user’s favourites

I hope you’ll find it useful as much as I did!
