Twitter search supports date filters in search queries, so you can easily restrict your reports to tweets from a specific date or dates. There are two date filters you can include in your queries.
You can add one or both of these date filters to any search query. For example:
tweetreach since:2013-03-15 until:2013-03-20
A few notes about date filters:
- The dates must be within the past 7 days to work. Snapshot reports can only go back about a week from the day they're run.
- Twitter stores tweets in the UTC time zone, so dates tie to UTC. If you want more flexibility over time zones, set up a Twitter Tracker in a Union Metrics subscription, which will convert tweets to your time zone.
- Dates correspond to 12:00 a.m. UTC. So the since: filter will find tweets starting around 12:00 a.m. on the date selected, and the until: filter will find tweets up until 12:00 on that date. For example, a search for #hashtag since:2011-07-01 until:2011-07-02 will return tweets from approximately 12:00 a.m. on July 1 though 12:00 a.m. on July 2, or tweets from the full day of July 1. It will not return any tweets from July 2.
- You can include one or both filters in your queries, depending on your needs.
