If your Twitter searching is based on location, you could add the "near" and "within" operators to your searches. But there is an easier, user-friendly way to define many different search queries. Using Monitter the results of each search are displayed in a column. For location fans, you can filter all the results using distance and location. You also receive links to reply, retweet, or view the twitter's profile.

After you create an account, you can immediately start creating alerts. Click on "My Alerts" and click on "New Keyword Alert" to display the New Keyword Alert page. You will find that the layout of this page is almost identical to Twitter's own Advanced Search form.

AskTwitR is mostly a very basic Twitter Search Engine with one unique feature that is a bit addictive. When you run a Twitter search from the simple hope page, the first thing you notice is a Google map. Immediately locations start popping up on the map and each is represented by a tweet from the search results. Each pop-up shows the tweet text as well as the tweeter's avatar.
The pointer also shows you the user's location on the map. If you scroll down, you will see matching Flickr photos, matching YouTube photos, and also matching tweets.
If you want to see who has mentioned your website on Twitter, you can simply enter the domain followed by.com and enter it as a Twitter Search. Nut some users have cut down the size using the URL-shortening service so this may not be the best way to search.
However when it comes to Twitter, there is always an easier way. Use BackTweets, you enter the address of interest and the program looks in the Twitter links for the address text you specified and displays the matching tweets. And it also searches for the shortened URL.
