Snap Bird Looks Good For Searching “Tweets”


Snap Bird is a new search engine for “tweets” on Twitter.

I may be missing something, but outside of subscribing to your own Twitter feed in your RSS Readers, this appears to be a great way to search for your tweets. In addition, you can easily search anyone else’s tweets just by typing in their user name and your own search term. (and you can do this without having to register)

Anyone have any better Twitter search applications to suggest?

  1. I may be wrong, Larry, but doesn’t HootSuite do all this and more?
    Perhaps you could give me a specific task and I’ll check if my HS will do it.
    I had a quick look on SnapBird’s site but didn’t notice anything new.

    • Greg,

      With Snap Bird, you can do a lot of this without registering. That’s a big reason why I posted about it, though I realized I neglected to mention that in my post. I’m not that familiar with Hoot Suite, but I had thought you had to register in order to use all its services. Let me know, please, if I’m wrong on that assumption…
