My username is moo9000. But I cannot search my own tweets in twitter.com:


Also looks like searching other users has problems:


Is there a reliable way to search through your old tweets?

Are there some third party tool which would give a reliable search results and e.g. list tweets by hashtag? Google is not capable of doing it, as results are pretty low quality.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

It is my understanding that Twitter only makes a limited number of your old posts available to search. IIRC, it's the last 3000, but I don't know why I think that. There are some apps, like ThinkUp that can be used to capture your posts over time.
