See quoted answers and retweets on Twitter with this simple trick


Angela Lang / CNET

The best thing about watching a tweet catch fire is to read snarky responses from people who retweet the tweet and add their own jabs, otherwise known as a quote response or a retweet for quote. Unfortunately, Twitter does not offer a single click solution that takes you directly to a page to see all the cited answers.

You can tag a bot like Cited Reply in a reply to the original tweet, which then generates a link, but that means you have to let everyone know that you are churning around a particular tweet. Not perfect. There are other ways to get the job done, but here is one of the simplest ways to search for and find all the cited answers and revivals for a particular tweet.


. Go to the original tweet and look at the URL in the browser's address bar.

2 . Copy the 19-digit numbers at the end of the tweet's URL.

If you use Twitter for iPhone or Android, you can also click the share icon (the icon to the right of the heart icon). When a list of options is displayed, press Copy link to tweet .

3 . Back to your Twitter Home screen, click on the magnifying glass Find the icon.

4 . Type url: into the search field and then paste the string of numbers you copied in step 1.

If you are on Android or iPhone and copied the link to the tweet paste that link and delete everything except the 19- digit number at the end. Then type url: in front of these numbers.

Tip: Sometimes, at the end of the 19-digit number, you will see a question mark followed by more letters, numbers and symbols. Remove them too, otherwise your search will not work the way you want.

5 . Now turn on enter and – swim-bing! – You can browse through all the snarky responses and hot take your heart's desires.
