How To Search For Twitter Usernames Directly From Chrome.

It’s been bugging me for months. I wanted a better, easier way to search for people’s Twitter usernames directly from the Chrome omnibox, without using a Google search.

Welp, I finally figured it out.

Step 1: Right-click on the Chrome omnibox and select “and select “Edit Search Engines…” (or go to Preferences > Manage Search Engines).

Step 2: In the “Other Search Engines” section fill in “Twitter User” in the “Add a new search engine” field, “@” in the “Keyword” field, and “” in the “URL with %s” in place” field. Click “Done”.


Step 3: Start searching. Simply type “@” with a space after it, and your omnibox will turn into a Twitter User search box.

Step 4: Profit.
