There are a lot of Twitter search tools. How do you search on Twitter?
The two search tools I use most often are Search.Twitter.com (which is from Twitter) and Twellow. Not only can you search to your heart’s desire on Search.Twitter, but it also gives a top 10 ranking of the hottest Twitter searches right now. As I write this blog post #snowmageddon (Minnesota is getting hit hard with snow apparently), Safari 4 (Apple’s new browser released last week), and Rocky Mountain News (closing of paper) are the top 3 searches.
Twellow is an easy way to find people by name or industry. If you’re new to Twitter it’s a fantastic way to find people to follow based on common interests. I knew about Twellow way before I even knew about or used Twitter’s own search function! There’s something on Twellow I just noticed called Twellow Hood, which directs you to people in your geographic area. I find it hard to believe there’s only 885 people in the entire state of NH on Twitter-126 in Manchester. Some people don’t put their location so that may cause the numbers to be low. This is very cool to find people local to you.
There are plenty of other search tools. Here’s a good list of them.
