How to see your retweets on Twitter


Twitter is gradually removing the Retweets tab from all accounts and merging it into the @username tab.

Editors' note: Unfortunately this quick fix was short-lived. However, this author is still seeking a new solution that isolates the retweets from other content on Twitter. If you have a suggestion or know of a solution, please add it to the comments, or share it with the author at cozdroid@gmail.com.

If you're running a Twitter account for a business, or if you're just curious about your personal reach within your followers, it can be difficult to sort through the @user tab's plethora of information.

So here's a quick fix for taking a look at your tweets, retweeted:

Log in to Twitter. Then, in the search box type:

include:retweets OR via @username

replacing "username" with your Twitter name.

If you find that the people retweeting you are using a different syntax (like "re:" instead of "via"), just add it to the end of the two search terms already listed.

For example,

include:retweets OR via @CNET OR re:@CNET

If you don't want to fuss with the search box, you can use this direct link by again replacing username with your actual Twitter name:
