Search by "starts with" for twitter feed filtering

I have followed a few twitter accounts that reply to an enormous number of random conversations, which floods my main feed. Since these posts all start with “@othershandle text…”, I looking for something similar to ^@ to find them and create a filter.

I know the search is not backed by a regex engine, but maybe there’s a trick to accomplish this? Any other workarounds would be appreciated, too.


There’s no “starts with” filter and punctuation like “@” is ignored.

But you could add ?exclude_replies&exclude_retweets to the end of the Twitter URL and subscribe to it. This will remove all replies and retweets.

Perfect! Thank you so much.
