That is, I have created a Twitter list with some 100 members and would like to search for a particular word within all users of the list.
Not the most elegant solution, but you could export or copy the list as csv and add them all to the advanced search How do I search for a specific word in all tweets from a given twitter account?– batpigandmeJun 8, 2013 at 13:33
it sounds like complicated– Open the wayJun 9, 2013 at 8:04
Use the search string:
So for instance:
If it's a private list, use the list ID (in the URL when viewing the list) instead of username/listname:
apparently, this only works for public lists. You cannot use it with your private lists.– wisbuckyNov 6, 2020 at 0:35
1@wisbucky You can use the list ID if it's a private list; added clarification to answer. Thanks!– JayNov 6, 2020 at 17:35
Private list search doesn't seem to work, at least not via Twitter's Developer API. I took the ID from my private list, and trying to search in the web browser for twitter.com works fine. However, in the API, it doesn't return any results. Nov 13, 2020 at 22:57
thanks @Jay! Yes, the list ID works for private lists (provided you are logged in, which makes sense).– wisbuckyNov 25, 2020 at 14:49
Thank you! This helped with solving the list search issue on TweetDeck. I used to search through private lists with the first method as if they were public. It used to work but after some time it didn't. I tried your solution for private lists and it finally worked. Aug 31, 2021 at 22:40
Very similar to the answer I literally just gave at https://webapps.stackexchange.com/a/45443/10707, but it's still relevent....
http://www.tweepi.com/ let's you see all of the members of a public list and, you can choose to see their bios in the table as well - more importantly you can filter on text in the bio - the screenshot shows me filtering on the keyword 'phd'
TweetDeck has an option to filter by lists.
1Please provide instructions on how to do this. Just giving an app name isn't very constructive. Oct 18, 2013 at 23:30
@AndrewLott should be self-explanatory now. Hope it helps. Oct 19, 2013 at 6:26
