If you use Twitter the way I do, you probably struggle to stay up with the stream of messages that come your way. Summize may offer a solution. It’s a new search engine for Twitter posts, and it appears to be facile and robust.
The service’s “About Us” section describes its mission as “to highlight the topics and attitudes expressed within conversational media.” The site pulls the posts from Twitter’s public timeline and gives a number of search options. For instance, you can:
- Find twitters from a user: from:alexiskold
- Find twitters to a user: to:techcrunch
- Find twitters referencing a user: @mashable
- Find twitters containing a hashtag: #haiku
- Find twitters with an attitude: : )
- Combine any of the operators together: jquery from:jeresig
You can also use a dropdown menu to do all of that. Plus, you can search for posts in 18 languages, and the site makes it easy to post your search results on Twitter.
