Search for People on Twitter with TweepSearch


If you often search for people on Twitter, you should check TweepSearch out. It basically allows you to search for keywords inside the bio of other Twitter users. This is quite useful if you want to find Twitter users with a specific characteristic.


For example, if you are looking to hire an SEO for your website you could search on TweepSearch for “seo expert,” and the tool would output a list of all the (supposed) SEO experts on Twitter.

There is also a feature to narrow the results to Twitter users following or being followed by a specific profile. For example, you could search for all the “seo experts” following or being followed by Matt Cutts (if they are not, after all, they can’t be real SEO experts…). To use this feature you just need to search for the profile first (e.g., @johndoe), and then search for the keyword.

    This is another sign that Twitter is trying to find different ways to maintain its status as one of the top forms of social media available. Friends have asked me if Twitter will go out of style and if they are making improvements and adding in features like this one, Twitter will be around for a long time.

    I haven’t tried this myself. I’ll have to see what it’s all about because this would come in handy when you’re trying to find someone in a hurry.

    I really like how fast you can find some great information on Twitter. It’s awesome.

    The search results are a little out of dates, the latest tweets may be 5 days ago.

  • Steven Richardson

    I thought this was basically going to be an advanced version of the Friend Finder feature that Twitter has on its site.

    This could be very handy when I’m looking for a graphic designer.

    @Srirah, yeah they could add some features to the search results to make them more useful, but I am sure it’s a matter of time.

    Interesting and useful tools.Maybe I can use it to find a freelancer to write my blog. 🙂 I’ll try it out.

  • Sriraj

    I tried it before. The search is nice compared to the default twitter search (for people, when logged in). But the arrangement of results could have been better like, putting the person/business with more number of followers first and then move down…. But it doesn’t seem so..

  • Henri @ Wake Up Cloud

    Interesting. I’ve been searching for something like this, but I’m usually just lazy and don’t look for it enough, but it always seems to land in my lap 😉
