#HootTip: How to Use Twitter Quick Search in #HootSuite
Social media and Twitter specifically can quickly create a mountain of content which can make filtering through social media to find relevant information a daunting task. The HootSuite dashboard is designed to help you sift through this online content and find exactly what you’re looking for. To help get you acquainted with the dashboard’s functionality, we have a new #HootTip all about this handy HootSuite feature.
Using Quick Search in HootSuite
HootSuite has multiple features available to search and sort through the torrent of social media content, but our Quick Search is easily the fastest and most convenient. You can quickly search a #hashtag, @mention, or keyword in Twitter instantly from the dashboard. Not only is this a great way to search through Twitter, but you can also save the search results as a stream allowing you to continually monitor your search from the Dashboard.
- Simply click the search bar on the top right hand side of the screen, type in your search, and press Enter.
- This will bring up live search results, where you can view the results, or save them as a stream.
- Once you’ve clicked “Save as Stream”, HootSuite will add that search query into your dashboard for you to keep tabs on at your convenience!
