If you have ever wanted to search for tweets from the past, Twitter really doesn’t offer a tool to do that. Its search function is all about new tweets. That’s fine unless you want a tweet from a few years ago.
Well, now you can find old tweets. Topsy has launched a search engine for tweets and they claim that they have indexed 425 billion tweets, so chances are you’ll be able to search every single tweet posted to Twitter. Or close to it. Just enter your search term and Topsy will display relevant results which can be adjusted by date, time and language.
Photos and videos too. It’s about time we got this. Twitter should have offered something on their own. But at least Topsy has us covered.
