Twitter’s Advanced Search option is not just used to check the latest tweet of your friend or other users you are spying on. It also allows you to check if the posted screenshots of celebrities’ tweets are legitimate.

If you have no idea how to use Twitter’s Advanced Search feature, then this guide is the right one for you. As of the moment, most of the social media platform’s users are relying on the app’s default search function.

They prefer using this since it provides great outputs when you are searching for a certain topic or finding an account. However, some Twitter posts can’t be searched using this option.

This is where the app’s Advanced Search option comes in. This feature of Twitter allows you to check tweets that contain specific words, which were sent during specific dates. On the other hand, it also allows you to see the specific user who posted it.

Because of this, many critics are using it to check if the random tweets containing screenshots of celebrity posts are hoaxes. Thanks to Twitter’s Advanced Search option, you can check the screenshot’s date and actual statement. After that, all you need to do is input this information to see if the celebrity you are following posted it or not.
