Today’s tip is to add a Twitter address bar search browser extension. That will mean you can search Twitter from the search bar at the top of your web browser.

The Firefox extension is at this link, or you can use the search dropdown to ‘manage search engines’ and access this search option and more.

The Chrome extension is at this link. This extension adds a search bar to Chrome (which will appear as a magnifying glass logo), with Twitter as one of the options.

You can carryout hashtag searches, user searches or enter Twitter advanced operators. For more on searching social media see this guide.

You might also like to add a Creative Commons Search option to Firefox, which was Monday’s tip of the day.
