Thanks for the question, use these content and connecting tips to help make your Twitter social media experience more engaging.

When searching for new content - use a Twitter search query with the following format:

phrase min_retweets:n min_faves:n -filter:nativeretweets

For example, to find new original and in this case, popular content about dogs use:

dog min_retweets:500 min_faves:10000 -filter:nativeretweets

What's happening here is:

  • phrase - words at the beginning of the search query are the phrase to search for, this can be a mix of words and hashtags.
  • min_retweets:n - is the minimum retweets that the post should have, replace n with the minimum number of retweets.
  • min_faves:n - is the minimum likes that the post should have, replace n with the minimum number of likes.
  • -filter:nativeretweets - shows tweets from people that have not retweeted this tweet, remove - to see retweets.

Some experimentation will be required for what works best. If you have interests in a more specific niche then it can be a good idea to lower the minimum numbers.
