Twitter users can also search for images or videos. Enter the search keyword/hashtag and run the query.  Click on 'Photo' or Video' to generate the media file you are looking for. If you are searching for a Twitter account, click on 'People'.

For Twitter users who want to stay up-to-date with the latest Twitter trend, the best way is to follow that account. For example, PNG Insight tweets/retweets are about Education, Development and Travel in Papua New Guinea. If you want to know about PNG travels and Port Moresby  Getaways, 'Follow Us'.

The users can also follow Topics. It works in the same way as following an account. We follow 'Education Trends' on Twitter and find some tweets insightful.

Reverse Image Search Google

Google reverse image search, commonly called Google Search by Image, is Google's online search service that allows a user to search for images using an image  (or its URL) as the starting point, instead of using a search keyword or spoken search query.

Here is what Google said about its Reverse Image Search facility...

"You can learn more about an image or the objects around you with a reverse image search. For example, you can take a photo of a plant and use it to search for info or other similar images."


How to use Reverse Image Search Twitter Images

Twitter users can use the Image ( or its URL) from a Twitter post and search the image on Google's image search. This helps users to find more information about the image. 

It is also a good way to identify image duplicates and take action if you think your images have been used without your approval. 

If you need any help, leave a message in the comment section and let us know what you think. Here is a post about someone stealing our content (text duplicate) that we address through the Google DMCA complaint file. You can also do the same for images. 

Twitter Searches You Should Know

We discussed Twitter searches and feeds that we thought are useful. Perhaps it is important to know that Twitter does not have checkers for searching by ''date'' or ''location''. 

But, the inbuilt features, we mentioned in this article, make it possible for users to either search Twitter or filter feeds and personalise their Twitter timelines.

Twitter has now created Advanced Search Filters for its users. Let us know in the comment if you think Twitter should have an 'Edit' button for its 350 million (2020, source) users worldwide.
