Twitter supports saving a specific search. However, it just seems to be the basic string search as opposed their advanced search on search.twitter.com. The advanced search allows you to select a language you would like the results in. How do I get the advanced search to be saved?


You can simply add lang:en to the search query. e.g.

cats lang:en

Bookmark the avanced search page in your browser. Press Ctrl+D for bookmark.

So that you can directly use this bookmark for search results.
