Let’s see important things about Twitter searches:

There are two types of searches on Twitter. They are:

  • Normal search
  • Saved search

Let’s see both.

Normal Search

This is the search you made on Twitter but it was not saved.

When you place the cursor or tap the Twitter search box, you will see the normal searches under the “Recent searches” or “Recent” section.

Remember, normal searches are only available on the device you’re using to do the search.

Example: If you search on Twitter for Android, it’ll be available in the app only.

Saved Search

Saved searches are searches that you’ve saved on Twitter. Each Twitter account can have up to twenty-five saved searches.

When you place the cursor or tap the search box, you’ll see the searches you’ve saved under the “Saved searches” or “Saved” section.

Remember, you can view your saved searches wherever you use your Twitter account.

Example: You saved a search on PC. You can see that one on the Twitter app.

Note: When you log out from Twitter (app and desktop version), all normal searches will get deleted automatically. The saved searches remain intact.
