A few months ago, Erik Michaels-Ober asked for:
Search APIs that can be scoped to a particular user's timeline. For example, I frequently want to search only the Tweets that appeared within my own timeline.
On February 12th of this year, @ahsteele asked for a similar feature:
I'd like to specify a Twitter list to search for a specified hash tag.
Searching by a hash tag is easy: http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%23geocamsu will search all of Twitter for the #geocamsu hash tag. I'd like to limit that search to a particular list but do not see an option for doing so on their advanced search page.
Is there something I'm missing that allows for specifying a list?
Finally, if you've made a search query on either Twitter.com or the Twitter iPhone app recently, you might've noticed that Twitter's 'Phoenix Search' is clearly placing tweets from those that you follow near the top of the search results.
- Does the Twitter-API support the ability to search your own home timeline (or any defined list)?
