This post is a continuation for “50 unique search engines – that are not Google – Part1

Twitter based Search

  1. http://backtweets.com – Searches for and returns all tweets containing a web address you specify. What’s interesting is it even pulls web addresses hidden behind URL Shorteners. If you don’t have a specific link but know the domain name, you can enter that and it will return all links from that domain name.
