Exclude tweets containing negativity from timeline widget?


It’s nice to have the Twitter Timeline widget on a website showing all the nice things people are saying, by displaying tweets from a search like:

But what if someone tweets your site is horrible? You don’t necessarily want to advertise that tweet in the widget. I tried excluding words like this:

It did not make any difference; tweets containing the word “horrible” still appear. Is there a way to do this that I’m missing?


You need to modify the keywords in the widget’s setting screen at http://twitter.com/settings/widgets


I created the widget on that screen by putting this in the Search Query field:

mysite.com -horrible

Did I do it incorrectly? Because it is not working.
