Easily extract the tweets resulting in a Twitter search and download them to an Excel file.

Please be aware that as of July 1, 2023, Twitter has revised its official limits. Verified accounts are now restricted to extracting 10,000 posts per day, unverified accounts are limited to 1,000 extractions, and new unverified accounts face a limit of 500 extractions. We are actively monitoring the situation for any potential updates.

Twitter Advanced Search feature is huge for finding information that has been once put on the Twittosphere and which disappeared from it way too fast. Use it to make a background check on a specific date range, to find people using some hashtags or relations of specific people. This data can be later used for building targeted audiences, big data analysis and much more.

Jumping right-in, by using a basic Tweet url ( https://www.twitter.com/BBCNews/status/123123123123 ) you will get only ~250 comments from it because this is the maximum number imposed by Twitter. So it's  enough to use this url format if you have less comments than this limit. Otherwise, you have to use an alternative way to get your Tweets.

For example if you want to get Tweets for a specific tweet id, open Twitter.com and use this Twitter search string (replace Tweet ID with yours):

conversation_id:123123123123 filter:replies

Once you got results, just copy browser link and paste to our EXPORTCOMMENTS, it should be something similar with this:


Now just return to ExportComments.com and paste this url to get Tweets in full.

Now that you've figured out how things are working, you can use this Twitter Advanced Search to get diversified results using Twitter Search Operators below.

Export Tweets in a date range

Let's say that you want to get Tweets from Dailymirror in a specified date range, to get that use the following search string:

from:dailymirror since:2020-01-01 until:2021-05-30

The result will be Tweets from 01 Jan 2020 to 30 May 2021, now copy your browser url and paste in in our tool, select Tweets and Start Export Process.

How to see quoted replies and retweets on Twitter

Visit the original tweet and check the URL in the address bar of your browser.

  1. Copy the URL of the tweet, which is a 19-digit numeric string.
    You may also select the share symbol if you're accessing Twitter on an iPhone or an Android device (the icon to the immediate right of the heart icon). Select Copy link to tweet from the list of alternatives that displays.
  2. Go back to your Twitter home page and click the search button with the magnifying glass.
  3. Paste the string of numbers you copied in step 1 into the search box after typing url.
  4. Paste the string of numbers you copied in step 1 into the search box after typing url.

If you copy the URL to the tweet while using an Android or iPhone, paste it and remove everything but the 19-digit string of digits. After that, add url: before those numbers.

Sometimes, at the end of that 19-digit string of numbers, you'll see a question mark followed by more letters, numbers and symbols. Delete those, or your search won't work like you want it to.

5. Now hit enter and -- bada bing! -- you can browse all the snarky replies and hot takes your heart desires.
