Twitter is great because it is an immediate medium. You tweet and immediately see reactions, mentions, retweets, etc… But this great asset of Twitter can also be one of its biggest downfall: There are hundreds of tweets entering your timeline in a fraction of time and this can make it very tricky to look back for a specific tweet.
You know this tweet you found interesting but did not have the time to deal with it straight away? Yes, you remember it was a few days ago, but your timeline has now been filled up with so many other tweets, you cannot seem to find it now.
Would it not be nice if Twitter could help you downsize your search to a specific date range? Well now they have done just that.
