Frequently Asked Questions



Kizzu lang:en – will find all tweets mentioning “Kizzu” in English only

Hint: don’t worry if you don’t know all the language abbreviations as you can enter the full country into the setup dashboard and Twilert will find it for you


The Twilert ‘filter by location’ tool allows you to type in a City, Country, Street name, venue or place name and search for tweets sent only within that specific area. You can also manually circle the area you want to cover using your cursor, for searches that are less specific.
