[LB6 Action] Search Twitter using Tweetbot

Post by manfred » Mon Jul 28, 2014 2:32 pm

Dependencies & Requirements: Installed Tweebot for Mac

Quickly search tweets and twitter handle in Tweetbot using LaunchBar. Select Tweetbot in LaunchBar and press the space key to trigger text input. Alternatively send any text from LaunchBar to Tweetbot using send-to.

If the text is prefixed with an @ sign, the twitter handle will be opened, otherwise a content search will be triggered.

Very useful, thanks :)

Is there any way to make it just search for a person in Tweetbot?

If you search in Tweetbot there are three different options to choose from:
  • Tweets with “searchTerm”
  • Users with “searchTerm”
  • Go to User @searchTerm
Sadly the second option can't be triggered via URL Scheme right now.

The last option is actually the one I'm triggering right now. Sadly it looks for the twitter handle only (not for names, or something else).

The twitter handle is all I want to search for, thanks.
