How to Sort Twitter Results by Popularity


You can use the Web interface on Twitter to perform searches and sort results.

Twitter is a popular social networking website where users can send “tweets” – short text messages of 140 characters or less – to followers as well as follow the tweets of others. Twitter has a universal search feature that you can use to submit queries and view results from every Twitter user whose status is set to public. When submitting a Twitter search query, you can sort the results based on popularity. The popularity of a single tweet is determined by the number of responses and retweets it receives.


Step 1


Open a Web browser and navigate to the website.


Step 2


Input your Twitter username and password in the upper right corner of the page and click “Sign In” to log in to your main timeline view.


Step 3


Enter the desired search terms in the input box at the top of the page and to the right of the Twitter icon.


Step 4


Press the “Enter” button on your keyboard or click on the “magnifying glass” icon to initiate the search query.


Step 5


Click on the drop-down menu at the top of the results list and choose the “Top” setting to re-sort the search results based on popularity.
