How to use FTH advanced Search?

Advanced search is a powerful tool that allows you to refine your searches.  It´s easy to use.

  1. Type your keyword.
  2. Deploy “advanced” menu and add all the search operators that you want.advanced-search-1
  3. Type any operator or search a location.
  4. Click the “+” button to add the operator.Advanced-mas
  5. Add as much operators as you need.
  6. Click on the search button.


Here there is a list of advanced search operators included in advanced search dialog and what we will search with them.


  • “Exact phrase”:  Tweets containing the “Exact phrase”.
  • True OR False: Tweets containing either “true” or “false” or both.
  • Included -excluded: Tweets containing “included” but not “excluded”.
  • Near / Within: Sent near the place you choose within a radius of X Km/miles. Just write some words and we will suggest you locations. 
  • Lang: Tweets written only in the selected language.
  • From:username (excluding @) : Tweets sent from “@username”.
  • To:username : Tweets sent to “@username”.
  • @username: tweets mentioning “@username”.

You can try to use other twitter search operators just typing it on the searchbox, it will probably work :)
