Search by keyword, hashtag, or user name

If you want to see how a campaign is being discussed, search through your Twitter mentions by a specific word. Let’s say you just recently started a campaign focusing on the MacBook Pro. You can use Twitter search for the keyword “MacBook Pro” to see all of the tweets that mention MacBook Pro.

The search function can also be utilized by specific hashtags as well as by usernames. With the hashtag search, you can evaluate how trending hashtags are being received and how influencers are tweeting about them.
