Covid 19: Using Twitter filters, you will now look for hospital beds and oxygen.
With the increase in Covid-19 cases in India, people from various states are using social media to assist one another in organising efforts to obtain drugs, hospital beds, and oxygen cylinders, all of which are in short supply. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp are only a few examples.
Citizens have begun to use social media to support the world by providing relief measures in light of the pandemic as more people get afflicted with the virus and the government’s enforced relief measures have proven insufficient. However, finding the details on Twitter can be troublesome since the website is already filled with Tweets requesting assistance.
Users of social media platforms such as Twitter can use the advanced search function to find tweets that contain specific keywords, phrases, hashtags, a specific language, geographic location, or a specific date — as well as tweets from, replying to, or mentioning a specific account. Users may use Search Operators to locate what they’re looking for.
What users type into the search bar is the most common Twitter operator. Typing Hospital beds, for example, can look for tweets containing certain words. Users can also search for tweets from a specific account by entering the account’s name into the search box.
If users want to see all tweets from Delhi that reference Oxygen cylinder vendors, they can type “Oxygen cylinder vendor” near Delhi to see all tweets in that region that contain the terms. Users can also search for all tweets from a specific location by typing near: Mumbai within:15mi. Users may also use the same method to locate all tweets made by users in a given location by searching for specific hashtags.
Users will be able to access Twitter more easily with the help of these apps, which comes at a time when many people are dependent on the website to obtain life-saving drugs, oxygen masks, and hospital beds.
