Twitter Advanced Search in Natural Language

Have you ever thought that Twitter Advanced Search is messy, and their syntax is hard to learn? Well it is history now.

Alt Text

I created a Chrome extension that automatically detects whether the search request resembles an “advanced search”. If so, when pressing enter, the input will be translated into a search with Twitter advanced search syntax.

Source code

This tool was made possible with query.quantleaf.com, a service that lets you query database tables with natural language. The service is based on a natural language like programming language, which means that the search text you write is treated as code, and the output is created when you run the program!

Feedback is highly appreciated!

Best regards
Marcus

I probably won't be using this (I don't use Twitter that much) , but I have to say it is super cool!

Thank you! I am currently working on a similar extension for Google Search, I think that might have a wider audience.
