November 28, 2009 – Twitter Search Engine

Filed under: Twitter — Tags: , , — Neha @ 10:29 pm

Twitter has become a huge rage these days. Right from school kids to professionals, celebrities to high fliers of the society are using it extensively. For the uninitiated, Twitter, in simple words is the ‘SMS of the internet’. It is a free social networking service that enables its users to send and read messages known as tweets. So, if you want to know anything and everything happening in the world, twitter is the first hand real time information source.

The only problem with Twitter is that its search engine stores tweets of maximum one or two weeks. Searchtastic is a venture which is capitalizing strongly on this one shortcoming of highly popular and widely used Twitter. Searchtastic which calls itself “Smart Twitter Search” provides the user the unique capability to search tweets as old as few months. This search engine has pitched in amazingly where twitter’s very own default search engine has failed. The search engine has a large real time twitter information archive from which any twitter can be pulled up by the user on a single search.

A quote can add the much needed punch in an otherwise dull writing and keep the readers or listeners hooked. It’s a common observation that people pay extra attention to the words of wise and intellectual men. However, finding just the right quote which perfectly fits the occasion and need is a tough task. After hours of mindless browsing also, we fail to find that “one-perfect” quote which can help in emphasizing the point.

AtoZQuotes is a website which will take care of all your needs for quotes, sayings and aphorisms. It’s an archive of quotations with more than 150,000 quotes of more than 25000 authors. Overwhelmed by the huge database? The excellent quotes’ search engine takes care of that quite well as you can browse the collection alphabetically as well as thematically. If you have a favorite author or a particular topic in mind, then the search process is a complete cakewalk. Just type the name of your chosen author or topic and one click of mouse will present before you all the quotes.
