Twitter doesn’t have its own full-text search feature, but luckily there are third parties meeting this need. Tweet Scan is the one I use – it’s a great way to find out when someone tweets about FeedDemon or TopStyle, especially since I can get the search results as an RSS feed.
FeedDemon customers can simplify the process of subscribing to Tweet Scan feeds by following these steps:
- View this page in FeedDemon, then click here to install the Tweet Scan search definition
- Click the Subscribe button, then type the keyword you wish to search for and click Next
- Select "Tweet Scan (Twitter Search)" from the list of search engines and click Next
- Select the folder you want to place this feed in, then click Next
- Click Finish
You’re now subscribed to an RSS feed which will bring you Twitter posts containing your keyword.
Tip: Use the OR operator to search for multiple keywords (ex: "google OR microsoft").
