Advanced Search Doing a keyword look-up for World Cup in Twitter Search results in an overflow of results.

Zooming in on the most relevant tweets For example, not everyone who tweets about the World Cup is a World Cup fan A simple keyword look-up for World Cup can be a mishmash of results </li> <li> *Please note: this presentation was prepared by a HootSuite Ambassador and therefore the information might not be 100% accurate. How can we narrow our search to find more interesting and relevant tweets? </li> <li> *Please note: this presentation was prepared by a HootSuite Ambassador and therefore the information might not be 100% accurate. By using search operators! </li> <li> *Please note: this presentation was prepared by a HootSuite Ambassador and therefore the information might not be 100% accurate.

What are search operators? Search operators help narrow your Twitter search results. Hashtag operator: limits search to tweets including #worldcup Language operator: limits search to tweets in English </li> <li> *Please note: this presentation was prepared by a HootSuite Ambassador and therefore the information might not be 100% accurate. Twitter has a vast array of search operators with infinite possibilities! Operator Finds tweets... twitter search containing both "twitter" and "search". This is the default operator. "happy hour" containing the exact phrase "happy hour". love OR hate containing either "love" or "hate" (or both). beer -root containing "beer" but not "root". #haiku containing the hashtag "haiku". from:alexiskold sent from person "alexiskold". to:techcrunch sent to person "techcrunch". @mashable referencing person "mashable".
