              With the Basics
In case you’re interested in a specific object, region, individual or maybe even a
phrase and you want to know if there are other people who tweeted about it,
then you could make use of Twitter search. This essentially takes the text you just
typed in and then it scans for the tweets that are similar or done by someone
else. Nevertheless, it would be challenging for various individuals to find where
exactly the Twitter search bar is located.

As of now, Twitter’s interface has been simplified. At present, the search bar, also
known as the search box, is conveniently located just right beneath the
“Favorites” link. This has replaced the old interface which Twitter used to have
wherein the search box was located way below the page.

The interface of Twitter as of now has made the social site easier and more
convenient to use. You should just type in a word or phrase you would like to in
the search box and press enter.

While in the home page of Twitter and typing in a word or phrase in the search
box, pressing enter would replace the home page with the search results. To be
up-to-date with the tweets which you are searching, the results which are
returned get arranged in a chronological manner; this is real good. A great feature
about the present twitter search is that you will now save your searches in case
you would like to use them for later. All you must do is to run a search then click
on the “save this search” option which is situated at the top of the results which
were just returned. Twitter would then add a link or two just below the search
box for easy access at any time.

Whatever searches you do on Twitter, you can always find matching tweets that
are under the “real time results” heading known as a term, or the search text that
you are performing. Making use of the “real time results” is going to show the
very recent tweets that have been posted according to your search. While this is
going on, the web site even tracks your terms discretely while the results you’re
searching for are being returned.

While an individual does the searching, Twitter even updates the banner. After
generating certain tweets which get updated in real time, the banner is going to
add to the number of incoming tweets. In this way, you could do live time
searches on Twitter.

So what are you waiting for? When you would like to look for someone or
something, you can do the Twitter social media search. If you want to look for
someone specifically, you could also do a Twitter people search.
