Search for People on Twitter with TweepSearch
If you often search for people on Twitter, you should check TweepSearch out. It basically allows you to search for keywords inside the bio of other Twitter users. This is quite useful if you want to find Twitter users with a specific characteristic.
For example, if you are looking to hire an SEO for your website you could search on TweepSearch for “seo expert,” and the tool would output a list of all the (supposed) SEO experts on Twitter.
There is also a feature to narrow the results to Twitter users following or being followed by a specific profile. For example, you could search for all the “seo experts” following or being followed by Matt Cutts (if they are not, after all, they can’t be real SEO experts…). To use this feature you just need to search for the profile first (e.g., @johndoe), and then search for the keyword.

Interesting. I’ve been searching for something like this, but I’m usually just lazy and don’t look for it enough, but it always seems to land in my lap 😉
I tried it before. The search is nice compared to the default twitter search (for people, when logged in). But the arrangement of results could have been better like, putting the person/business with more number of followers first and then move down…. But it doesn’t seem so..
Interesting and useful tools.Maybe I can use it to find a freelancer to write my blog. 🙂 I’ll try it out.
@Srirah, yeah they could add some features to the search results to make them more useful, but I am sure it’s a matter of time.

Cool tool.. thanks for the share.
That’s cool search site, will find the people and their news!
I thought this was basically going to be an advanced version of the Friend Finder feature that Twitter has on its site.
This could be very handy when I’m looking for a graphic designer.
The search results are a little out of dates, the latest tweets may be 5 days ago.
I haven’t tried this myself. I’ll have to see what it’s all about because this would come in handy when you’re trying to find someone in a hurry.
I really like how fast you can find some great information on Twitter. It’s awesome.
Really useful advice here, and a very useful app to boot! I look forward to submitting your post to Blogger Den, I’m sure it’ll draw a lot of attraction and you’ve got a sweet blog here!

This is another sign that Twitter is trying to find different ways to maintain its status as one of the top forms of social media available. Friends have asked me if Twitter will go out of style and if they are making improvements and adding in features like this one, Twitter will be around for a long time.
Nice search tool. I wondered if there was something like this available. Thanks and Happy New Year.
