Twitter’s search engine packs a huge punch & can help you a lot with your business. It lets you easily watch many relevant conversations about most any topic.

The trick that I personally use EVERY SINGLE DAY is the -http method. For me, it's all about saving time. With this method, I can search for people only mentioning a brand. Here's an example of that. Noticed how the tweets didn't show any links?


That's how I search like a boss and build killer engagement quickly with my audience. Yes. #winning. 

2. Search for content like a BOSS

Want more content?

I'm addicted to my Twitter lists!

That's where I organize the tweets that are most important to me. I have many lists that align with my business & personal interests.

Lists let me easily find

  • celebrities
  • businesses
  • marketer
  • friends
Without missing a single tweet. How great is that? Twitters lists help to keep me in the loop with marketing trends, helps me learn and allows to keep in touch with what my friends are doing.

Whenever I'm not using twitter lists, I get 100% of my content with Post Planner's app alone. I love to use Viral Photos to search for visuals since I've already added link type posts to my queue based on my tweets from my twitter lists. 

Here's how I search for content like a boss with Post planner. 


Takes me a few seconds to set up a content. #twitterboss

4. Tweet Creative Descriptions like a BOSS

Don't just take the path of least resistance when tweeting a link!

If you want a proper engagement on twitter you need to think of compelling, creative headlines of your own!

Many people just tweet the headline from the article, which gets boring. While it's okay to post once or twice about this. Constantly posting will get repetitive. 

Here are some ways to spice up your descriptions:

  • Opinion about the link
  • Post a quote from the article

I'll usually experiment with all three for one post. You'll be surprised which will work.
