Twitter user @colleidoscope shared this shortcut for quickly searching replies and quotes to a specific tweet:
with how shit the reply sorting has gotten ive created a crude ios shortcut to quickly search replies and quotes https://t.co/SwzvEM85iP

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.
