Historical Twitter Data: How to Search Old Tweets Posted Years Ago

Out of all the social media platforms, Twitter is widely known as the fastest medium for accessing the latest news and a platform for users to share their opinions. Around 6000 tweets are sent out on Twitter every second, which gives 500 million tweets posted each day, and over 200 billion tweets every year. This quantity of user-generated data posted on this platform is vastly diverse and at the same time, mind-boggling.

User-generated content (tweets) is essentially a virtual cornucopia of valuable audience, competitors, and industry insights. Brands and marketers are always on the lookout for such actionable insights to enhance their social media strategy. Twitter provides a feature with which anyone with a Twitter account can access tweets. This feature is called Twitter Advanced Search. But there is a limit to what you can do with it. While it can provide you access to all the old tweets posted by any public Twitter account, the task if done manually, can be taxing as well as time-consuming.
