Mentions serach in tweets

Wikirating Team 30-Jan-2012 02:26:55

Hello,
When I search for a specific word mentioned in tweets in Twitter counter, it seems that it searches always with the @ symbol. Example: if I seach for the word "corner", it will perform the search on "@corner", which gives a complete different result...
Am I doing smthg wrong? Is there a ways to change this?
Thanks

Hi there, our search is only to search for user profiles as that's the content we offer here publicly. If you like to track tweets we have a neat little service called Twitter Tracker - http://twittercounter.com/pages/twitter-tracker. It's part of our Pro Stats package for only $15 a month. Hope this helps.

Enjoy your weekend!

Hello Jorg,

OK, thanks, no I got it. However I am a bit disappointed: I have applied for the Premium Twitter Stats subscription, but one can start the twitter tracker search only at the date of the premium start. Is there no possibility to start a tracker search earlier in time? Does the premium service not offer this option?

Hi,

We try to get tweets on the subject till two days ago but further than that isn't possible at the moment with the Twitter API as far as I know.
