Twitter Tool Tuesday – Backtweets

Print Friendly

Backtweets allows organizations or individuals to search for tweets that link back to their website or blog, including those with shortened URLs.

To use it you simply enter a URL into the search box, click the search button and the tool will present you with a list of tweets that include the URL you’ve just entered. To make things really easy, tweets are presented in chronological order according to when they were sent. There are also some advanced options that let you filter results by date and user.

Once of my favourite things about Backtweets is the Alerts Service, which lets you opt-in to receive email updates whenever someone tweets a URL you’ve entered. The frequency of these alerts can be set to daily or weekly.

All-in-all Backtweets is a great way for organisations or individuals alike to keep abreast of what people on Twitter are saying about them.
