Finding your most popular Tweets

by @edent | # # # | 1 comment

Twitter’s search interface has all sorts of lovely and obscure options.

My three favourites are “min_retweets:”, “min_replies:”, and “min_faves:”

Using those filters, you can create a search for Tweets which meet a certain threshold. For example, here are my Tweets which have been liked more than 500 times:

twitter.com/search?q=from:edent min_faves:500

Here are the ones which have been retweeted 300 times with at least 100 replies:

twitter.com/search?q=from%:edent min_replies:100 min_retweets:100

Of course, you don’t have to do this for your own Tweets. You can perform the search on any term, or any user.

    This is great – thank you!

    So much better than timehop, which doesn’t show me the right tweets and makes it impossible to actually get to the source.
