How to track Twitter conversations between 2 people
The other day I needed to find an exact tweet in a short exchange between the Atlanta Falcon’s social media manager and I. Since I had failed to favorite the tweet I needed, expecting the other party to have responded earlier, I was left to use searching and scrolling and other messy approaches.
Then I remembered Bettween, a service I had used a few months ago. It is possible I learned about Bettween from Laura Fitton or from OneForty.com and you can always find great Twitter tools there as well.
Bettween is a free service that allows you to enter two Twitter handles and track the conversation between those people. In fact you may even create a custom widget to embed in your blog or website with an ongoing live stream based on your search results. (I did not cover this in the video but the image to the right is the results from the second search I did in the video.)
Using the system is very straight forward. Results may take some time to compile so be patient. In fact the search I did between Megan Berry and DKNY did not complete until about 4 minutes after I had completed the video.
There are definitely other ways to do this but this is just a quick look at one method. Feel free to leave others in the comments section and let others know about what you have found. Perhaps there are better ways or just other ways – either way – we want to know about them!
