Twitter user @colleidoscope shared this shortcut for quickly searching replies and quotes to a specific tweet:
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"> <p dir="ltr" lang="en">with how shit the reply sorting has gotten ive created a crude ios shortcut to quickly search replies and quotes <a href="https://t.co/SwzvEM85iP">https://t.co/SwzvEM85iP</a></p> — sonderful (@colleidoscope) <a href="https://twitter.com/colleidoscope/status/1651724406668816384?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">April 27, 2023</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
The shortcut scrapes the current tweet’s ID from the URL, then takes advantage of Twitter’s search operators to build an advanced query:
(min_faves:1 OR min_replies:1) (-filter:safe OR filter:safe) include:nativeretweets (conversation_id:ID OR quoted_tweet_id:ID)
Twitter’s quality control issues notwithstanding, this is useful for finding that one quote tweet you swore you saw, or digging through a massive list of replies from popular accounts – what a clever use of Twitter Search.
