There are some interesting articles around about using advanced Twitter search techniques to narrow down results. Most simply use the functions on the advanced search page or search operators to create interesting searches:

  • Ahh...finally found out how to search by client "source:[CLIENT NAME]" - I had forgotten about this one. Thanks Commented Jul 12, 2010 at 13:10

I've found that Searchtastic yields deeper historical search results than Twitter's Search

EDIT: Sadly Searchtastic has shut down.

  • Your searchtastic link is missing the .com. :) Looks pretty cool though!
