There are a whole bunch of ways to hone down your Twitter filters with Gameplainer, read on for an explanation of how to get started.
All Twitter searches require a search string, which can be any text you like. You can use quoted words for phrases (such as
"Space Pirate Trainer"), put a hyphen before a word to make sure results are not returned containing that word (eg return tweets that include the phrase
"Space Pirate" but not
Trainer you could use
"Space Pirate" -Trainer)
You can also enter in the search string a Twitter username (eg
@HanneyChris) to return tweets mentioning, or by, the username.
Below are some of the more controls you can select when creating a Gameplainer Twitter search:
@HanneyChris), it will return only mentions of the user, not tweets by the user
@HanneyChris), Gameplainer will not return any replies to tweets by that username - just standalone tweets.
