While power users of Twitter have always known ways to search for tweets by date, Twitter has made changes to the advanced search feature on the web version, to allow all users to easily look for tweets from a particular day.
Earlier, one would have to know to use the 'Since:' and 'Until:' prefixes to look for a tweet from particular date. For example, you would have to search like this: “Alok Nath since:2014-02-01 until:2014-02-05” to find tweets related to the Bollywood actor within these dates. But now the advanced search page now has separate text entry fields for since and till dates, along with the other already-existing People and keyword options. In addition, you can also search for tweets by date based on a particular mood i.e negative or positive.
It's great that Twitter has finally rolled out a native date-based search feature, and we ran a search for Alok Nath tweets between February 1 and February 5. Just like any other search we can embed the results. While there’s no real utility in saving a date-based search (seeing as it’s so easy now), Twitter has offered you the option to save the search.
