Your Call-to-Action:

Your call-to-action for this episode is to go to Twitter’s Advanced Search and look up something. This can be from a past conversation with someone or answers from a Twitter chat.

Call-to-Action Screen Shot and Example:

In the example below, I’m using Twitter’s Advanced Search to look up answers from the #TwitterSmarter chat. I put in “A1” so I can see tweets from those who responded to Q1 (question 1) of the chat. I put in the #TwitterSmarter hashtag and the date of the chat. When putting in your dates, you need to put in “from” and “to.” In the “from” I put in the date of the chat. In the “to” I put in the next day. This will give me a 24 hour window of tweets to view. Click on the “Search” button at the bottom of the page. You’ll get the results. It will always default to “Top” at the top left side of the page. Click on “Latest” to get all the tweets in reverse chronological order. Experiment and see what you come up with. I find Advanced Search very helpful if I want to find a Twitter conversation I had with someone in the past.
