Using Twitter Advanced Search



You can leverage the full power of Twitter advanced search to filter retweets in RoundTeam. Twitter advanced search allows you to filter retweets by language, attitude, author, and other criteria. It also provides additional text filters.

Start using Twitter advanced search with RoundTeam in 3 simple steps:

Step 1: Go to Twitter advanced search to create the search expression you want to retweet.

Step 2: Copy the search expression from Twitter and paste it to RoundTeam.

Step 3: Optionally, apply additional RoundTeam filters, such as “Number of Hashtags” to get best results.

Lets have a closer look at these Steps.

Step 1. Go to Twitter Advanced Search: You will see the following form:

Fill in the available fields with the content you would like to retweet.

Note: You may or may not use the “Words” section. Also, notice the “People” section, where you can explicitly specify Tweets authors.

For the purpose of a vivid example, we decided to search for Tweets containing the word “festival” and the hashtag “#indie” written in English. We also want to filter out Tweets containing the words “annoying" and "weird”.

Here is how it looked on the Twitter Advanced Search page:


Click  the “Search” button as soon as you are done with the configuration.

After your search results appeared, switch to “Live” Tweets.

Step 2. At this point the search results are equivalent to what will be retweeted by RoundTeam.

If Tweets you see meet your retweet goals, copy the search expression right above the Tweets feed:

In our example, the search expression looks like the following:

festival -annoying, -weird #indie lang:en 

 the search expression to your RoundTeam account as a new retweet item:



Note: You can only use the Twitter search expression in the Tweets Category, not in the Lists or Direct Messages categories.

In our example we added our newly created retweet setting to the Tweets category, which means we will get retweets from anyone on Twitter. For more precise results you can apply any of RoundTeam's powerful filters, such as “Number of Hashtags”, “Number of Mentions” and others.

In our example, we decided to filter out Tweets containing more than 2 #hashtags and more than 1 @mention:


Make sure and click "Save" when you are done applying filters to your setting.

Here is the final setting:


That’s it. Now our @RoundTeam_demo account is set up to retweet Tweets about indie festivals written in English.

RoundTeam’s powerful filters bring a lot of value to its users: retweets become more precise, undesirable content is filtered out. By connecting Twitter advanced search and RoundTeam, we take another step forward, giving our customers even more powerful tools to retweet only what they really want and need, and nothing else.

Enjoy, and happy retweeting!
