Example of how to use the Twitter search query format with flags to find new original popular content about cats.

cats min_retweets:5 min_faves:20 -filter:nativeretweets
Example for how to use Twitter search.

What's happening here is:

  • phrase - words at the beginning of the search query are the phrase to search for, this can be a mix of words and/or hashtags.
  • min_retweets:n - is the minimum retweets that the post should have, replace n with the minimum number of retweets.
  • min_faves:n - is the minimum likes that the post should have, replace n with the minimum number of likes.
  • -filter:nativeretweets - shows tweets from people that have not retweeted this tweet, remove - to see retweets.

Some experimentation is required for what works best.

If your interests are in a more specific niche consider lowering the minimum numbers.
